Tablets are one of the most widespread oral solid dosage forms in dietary supplements. Tablets are commonly coated either to improve their appearance or to bring functionality.
Film-coating is a key step in tablet formulation. It plays different roles such as:
- Adding colors to enhance the product appearance or to differentiate one product from another
- Making tablet swallowing easier
- Masking the taste, odor or color of the active ingredient(s)
- Protecting the active ingredient(s) from moisture
SEPPIC offers ready-to-use and gastrosoluble film-coatings for tablet formulation - for esthetic purposes or for an effective protection against moisture. SEPPIC also distributes film-forming polymers.
