    Excipients for Drug Formulation Kollicoat® MAE 100 P

    Kollicoat® MAE 100 P

    Reliable and safe enteric coating

    Kollicoat® 100 P is a reliable, high-performance film coatings based on methacrylic aid-ethyl acrylate copolymer (1:1), designed specifically for enteric tablet coating. Many APIs degrade in the acidic environment of the stomach or irritate its lining. But the smart polymers in Kollicoat® MAE shield active ingredients from aggressive gastric juice and only dissolve once in the intestine – making sure the API is released in precisely the right place. Kollicoat® MAE 100 P is a partially neutralized powder for rapid re-dispersion. Both grades offer robust protection, while facilitating more simple and cost-effective production processes.

    Why choose Kollicoat® MAE?
    Excellent resistance to gastric juices
    Can be processed easily and efficiently
    Rapid release at pH values greater than 5.5
    Can be used for all tablets, capsules, pellets and granules

    Product Innovation on Modified Release Coatings (Sustained Release and Enteric Coatings)

    Developing modified coatings that produce a reliable and stable release is still a challenge. Only a few polymers - polyvinylacetate, ethylcellulose and methacrylates - are suitable for this purpose and have very different characteristics. In this webinar, you will gain an in-depth knowledge about the relevant requirements for modified release coatings and how they can be fulfilled, for instance by choosing a suitable polymer, the proper formulation and the best process parameters.
