Polymer specially used for film coating, enteric coating, moisture barrier coating, sustained release, taste masking of bitter drugs, binder for powders, transdermal therapeutic system etc.
MATCOAT range is transparent or colored film forming coating polymers based on methacrylic acid co-polymers type A, B & C confirms to USP/NF & EP specifications. The range of metcoat is useful for film coating, enteric coating, moisture barrier coating, sustained release, taste masking of bitter drugs, binder for powders, transdermal therapeutic system etc.
- Option of solvent, semi aqueous and aqueous vehicle.
- Less quantity required so reducing volume of coating solution thus shorting production time.
- Stability over a broad temperature range.
- Exhibits excellent color value.
- Cost effective.
- Easy to formulate.
Shelf lifePowder form - Five years from date of manufacturing in intact condition.
Liquid form - Two year from date of manufacturing in intact condition
As Metcoat range is a high molecular weight polymer, it cannot be absorbed by body. Thus, it is safe for human consumption.
Test for toxicological tolerance shows that it does not have any pronounced or physiological action.
