Complete solutions for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical coatings

From masking unpleasant tastes and odors to protecting drugs, supplements and over-the-counter solutions from environmental stresses, film coating offers a world of benefits for patients and manufacturers. 

All-round better drug delivery

Film coating offers so much more than taste-masking. For patients and consumers, properly coated tablets means a more attractive appearance, simpler drug identification, enhanced flavor and odor and easier swallowing. The result? Better medication adherence, better healthcare outcomes and a better quality of life.

In the laboratory too, coatings help limit cross-contamination, improve tablet quality, stability and packaging efficiency, safeguard against damage from light, water or gases, and make sure brands stand out in a crowded marketplace. 

Our coating solutions
