Easy to process coating solutions for enteric and sustained release and moisture protection
Modified release for soft gels — Polymers for softgel shells
Enteric release and moisture protection are the most commonly desired functional coatings for soft gel capsules. Omega-3 capsules, for example, are commonly coated with an enteric polymer to prevent the dissolution of the Omega-3 oil in the stomach with could result in unwanted burbs. Furthermore, moisture protective coatings are very important for soft gels due to the formulation challenges of soft gels with their long-term stability or their tendency to stick together.
