    Kollicoat® Protect

      Kollicoat® Protect is a combination of water-soluble Kollicoat® IR and polyvinyl alcohol. This instant release coating is highly impermeable to water – making it ideal for moisture-sensitive active ingredients and greatly increasing formulation stability. What’s more, processing is fast and straightforward: this highly flexible film former can be prepared at room temperature, and no plasticizer is required. Thanks to the polymer’s low viscosity, it is possible to create spray suspensions with a solids content of 20 percent – for exceptionally cost-efficient manufacturing processes.

    Why choose Kollicoat® Protect?
    Water-soluble polymer combination for moisture protection
    Simple formulation, no plasticizer required
    Robust production processes for consistently good results Smooth scale-up of operations
