Opadry® Enteric, Formulated for Solvent Coating
Opadry Enteric is a platform of fully formulated delayed release coating systems from Colorcon suitable for application by organic or hydro-alcoholic processing techniques. Specific Opadry Enteric coating series have been developed from enteric polymers including the “91 series” which uses Polyvinyl Acetate Phthalate (Phthalavin enteric coating polymer, PVAP) and the "94 series" which uses "poly(methacrylic acid, methyl methacrylate) 1:1 from Evonik. All Opadry Enteric systems allow for rapid dispersion preparation and application with many types of coating equipment, including conventional pans.
