Evaluation of a Novel, High Solids, Film-Coating System for Temperature Sensitive Products

Processing heat sensitive products below body temperatures with aqueous based coating solutions is challenging. HPMC or PVA based coating formulations typically require film forming temperatures above 40°C. The goal of this study was to evaluate the coating quality of a modified, starch based polymer utilizing various solids percentages at process bed temperatures lower than 35°C for different tablet compositions and batch loads.
