Nutrafinish®, Dietary Supplement Coatings Designed to Match Industry Needs
Improves film forming capabilities including logo definiton, high tensile strength and excellent adhesion properties.
Starting with the tablet core, naturally derived starch and cellulosic products provide manufacturers with compressibility, flow, and stabilize moisture-sensitive ingredients. The replacement of multiple core ingredients in the formulation with specialist starch products such as Starch 1500®, Partially Pregelatinized Starch, or StarTab®, Directly Compressible Starch, enables manufacturing simplification through easier flowing blends and direct compression for tableting. These specialist excipients also help to stabilize the core by literally scavenging moisture and reducing the degradation of the ingredients. METHOCEL™ Cellulose Ethers, derived from sustainable cellulose, the most abundant polymer in nature, are primarily used as a binder in formulations, but also play an important role when an extended release product is required.
