    Excipients for Drug Formulation Kollicoat® MAE 30 DP

    Kollicoat® MAE 30 DP

    Reliable and safe enteric coating

    Kollicoat® MAE 30 DP is reliable, high-performance film coating 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. MAE 30 DP is an aqueous dispersion with a solids content of 30 percent. This product offers 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

    Application examples

    Protection of gastro-sensitive active


    Protection of gastric mucosa from aggressive


    Gastrointestinal targeting

    e.g. proton-pump inhibitors, enzymes, peptides, antibiotics

    e.g. COX-1-inhibitors, iron compounds, acetylsalicylic acid, diclofenac-sodium

    e.g. budesonide, clarithromycin, doxazosin, pancreatic enzymes


    Overcoming Softgel Coating Challenges

    Soft gelatin capsules (softgels) have become an increasingly popular method for the delivery of pharmaceuticals and dietary supplements due to to the ability to encapsulate sensitive compounds, accurately deliver potent molecules, and directly appeal to the consumer. However, applying a functional coating to softgels is a challenging endeavor requiring precise formulation and finely tuned processing parameters that only recently have been explored. In this webcast, pharmaceutical scientists and formulators will learn about key aspects of successful softgel coating processes. Discussion topics include:
