Colorcon is a leader in the development, supply, and technical support of fully-formulated film coating systems and tableting excipients used by pharmaceutical, nutritional and vitamin manufacturers worldwide.

Film Coatings Add Consumer Appeal
Our newest coating, Opadry® NutraPure™, is made with USDA certified ingredients and recently received Non-GMO Project verification, and Halal certification. The high gloss and perceived ease-of-swallowing tablets coated with Opadry® NutraPure™ gives manufacturers a competitive edge over uncoated tablets or plain hard gelatin capsules.

While Certified Organic supplements are increasing in the marketplace, other product development projects will also benefit from our full complement of specialized nutritional supplement film coatings. Clean-label ingredients (no allergens, no chemicals, naturally derived colors) remain in demand with consumers. Their use can help retailers obtain better shelf space and increase brand promotional opportunities.

Fish oil and probiotic supplements also remain high growth areas. Colorcon offers an enteric coating system, Nutrateric®, designed to release the active ingredients beyond the stomach, increasing their benefit.

Colorants – Adding Value to Your Product
Colorcon’s Opatint®, a fully-formulated coloring solution, allows manufacturers to make vitamin products like gummies and softgels more vibrant and appealing while improving both quality and process efficiency.

Unrivaled Technical Support
Well known for our services, Colorcon provides unrivaled technical support - both at the customer’s location or at one of our well-equipped technical laboratories.

Our tradition of service, plus quality and innovation, help nutritional supplement manufacturers and marketers around the world lower overall costs, increase productivity, and speed products to market.
