Aquarius™ Prime film coating systems are pre-blended, ready-to-use powders that are easily dispersed in water and applied to immediate-release dosage forms where aesthetics are the primary need. Film coatings for immediate-release tablet-coating applications are typically comprised of a polymer, such as hypromellose (HPMC) or hydroxypropylcellulose (HPC); a plasticizer, and optionally a pigment/opacifier. We take great care in formulating all film coatings in our portfolio. The selection of ingredients and levels of use are critical factors in obtaining the target appearance and performance on the tablet core and in minimizing processing problems. Optimizing a film coating formulation requires careful balancing of specific film properties, such as strength, adhesion, flexibility and opacity. The Aquarius™ Prime film coating systems can be matched to existing cellulosic film coatings and are also available as clear and white base formulations.
