Aquarius™ nutra TF (titanium dioxide free) film coating systems

who is brilliant with TiO2? we are. 

Aquarius™ nutra TF is a fully formulated, immediate release, aqueous film coating system made specifically for nutritional and dietary supplement products.

Due to the re-evaluation of TiO2 (E171) as a food additive in the European Union, Ashland developed titanium dioxide free film coating formulations. Aquarius™ nutra TF is a TiO2-free film coating system that provides a comparable white film coating for oral solid tablet forms. Aquarius™ nutra TF aqueous film coating systems are available in white and a wide variety of pigmented options.
