SEPIFILM PW ready-to-use film-coating

SEPIFILM™ PW

Powder form, ready-to-use gastrosoluble film-coating agents

The SEPIFILM™ PW is a range of HPMC-based ready-to-use film-coating agents.

The SEPIFILM™ PW range comprises immediate release film-coating agents and gives an elegant finish to tablets.

A beneficial film-coating system

The product formulations in the SEPIFILM™ PW range are optimized for aesthetic film-coating. These are HPMC-based systems that combine a film-forming polymer with a filling agent and plasticizer. They are designed for aqueous film-coating but are also compatible for organic film-coating.

The SEPIFILM™ PW products are available in powder form and in white, colourless and 11 further colours.
Each colour is created from a single pigment in order to facilitate the submission of a marketing authorisation dossier. The colour can be lightened by adding SEPIFILM™ PW White.

SEPIFILM™ PW can be combined with SEPIFILM™ LP in order to provide a coloured film-coating for moisture protection.

Main benefits

Due to its low viscosity and its powdered form, SEPIFILM™ PW has both economic and technical benefits:

  • Simple and rapid dispersion
  • 20% dry matter in dispersion without increasing viscosity
  • Time saving (up to 30%) during the film-coating process
