Oct 8 14
Colorcon, Inc. and BASF announced their cooperation for using immediate release coating polymer Kollicoat(R) IR for Colorcon's fully formulated ready-to-use coatings. Colorcon will expand their PVA-based product portfolio by offering customers an alternative efficient and convenient solution for the immediate release coating of pharmaceuticals and dietary supplements. "With this new ready-to-use coating option formulators can benefit from both the coating performance of Kollicoat IR and Colorcon's worldwide unique, customized services", said Daniele Piergentili, Vice President Global Marketing Pharma Ingredients at BASF.

This polymer enables processing at low temperatures and high solids content while delivering appropriate coating results. Kollicoat is monographed in all major markets, and has furthermore received GRAS status (Generally Regarded As Safe) in the US and the European E-Number (E1209) for application in dietary - nutritional supplements.
