Pharmaceutical film coating: providing coating excipients for pharmaceutical industry | Roquette


LYCOAT® means quality coating A film coating is a thin polymer-based coat applied either on the surface of tablets, or on materials dispensed within capsules. Roquette has developed a specific modified pea starch with outstanding qualities: LYCOAT®. LYCOAT® is a film forming polymer, specifically developed for aqueous film coating for immediate release. It is rapidly solubilized in water, without lump or foam formation for a rapid preparation of the coating suspension. LYCOAT®’s viscosity is low, which allows the preparation of high dry substance coating suspensions. Coating time is drastically reduced. LYCOAT® coating is of high quality, very brilliant, with no logo bridging and a neutral taste.
