    Softgel Coatings

      Functional coating is one way of modifying drug release from the softgel. In many cases the drug product needs to protected from acid attack in the stomach and enteric release coatings provide protection from this occurring. Also, sustained release coatings can provide a multitude of modified release drug profiles for the softgel. The moisture barrier coating can provide long term stability for moisture sensitive APIs. BASF has a comprehensive portfolio of coating solutions to provide these functionalities. Our technical experts can help customize formulations and coating processes for your particular product needs.
