A wide variety of solid dose pharmaceutical products are film coated.

Composition of a Coating Formula

A typical coating formula is composed of:

SheffCoat™ Film Coatings

SheffCoat™ film coatings are pre-blended ready-to-use coatings that allow you to customise a film coating that is compatible with your API and regional regulatory requirements. There are Titanium Dioxide and Titanium Dioxide free variations available, helping formulators with their unique requirements.

Clean Label Coatings

Titanium dioxide is widely using within pharmaceutical tablet coatings due to its ability to make films opaque, produce pastel shades as a result of its whiteness, and maintain excellent light/heat stability. However with increased regulation surrounding Titanium Dioxide, more formulators are looking at potential replacement opacifiers.
