Film Coating

Colorcoat FC4W, FC4S & FC4WS grades are ready to use pre-blended film coating material. Colorcoat film coating series is used in film coating of tablets, pills, pellets, granules and powder by aqueous, solvent and semi aqueous method. It is available in different colors and also as per customer requirement. The film is swellable and permeable at any pH. It gives excellent, glossy and shiny film having good tensile strength.

Enteric Coating

Colorcoat EC4W & EC4S grades are ready to use coating material, which is used in enteric coating of tablets, pills, pellets, granules and powder. It is available in different colors and also as per customer requirement.

Moisture Barrier Coating

Colorcoat MB4W & MB4S grades are ready to use pre-blended coating material, which is used in moisture barrier film coating of tablets, pills, pellets, etc. It is available in different colors and also as per customer requirement. The film is swellable and permeable at any pH.

Seal Coating

Colorcoat SC4W & SC4S grades are ready to use pre-blended coating material, which is used in seal coating of tablets, pills and pellets. It is available in different colors and also as per customer requirement. The film is swellable and permeable at any pH.

Transparent Coating

Colorcoat MB4S(Clear), FC4W(Clear) and FC4S(Clear) grades are ready to use pre-blended coating material, which is used for transparent coating of tablets, pills and pellets. Colorcoat MB4S(Clear) grade is used for transparent moisture barrier coating. The film is swellable and permeable at any pH.

Flavor Coating

Colorcoat FL4W & FL4S grades are ready to use pre-blended coating material comprised of a film forming substances, flavoring agent, sweetening agent etc. Flavor coating is applied on solid oral dosage forms having unpleasant taste, odor etc. Flavor can be added as per customer requirement. The film is swellable and permeable at any pH.

Sweet Coating

Colorcoat SW4W & SW4S grades are ready to use coating material which is used for sweet coating. Sweet coating can be used as a substitute for sugar coating. The film is swellable and permeable at any pH.

Pearlescent Coating

Colorcoat Pearl film coating systems can be applied either directly to a substrate or after the substrate has been coated with a subcoat to give pearlescent effect. Colorcoat pearl is comprised of pearlescent pigment. The film is swellable and permeable at any pH.

Gloss Coating

Colorcoat glow is a milky white 30% aqueous dispersion, which can be used with solvent as well as an aqueous system. It gives shiny, glossy and elegant appearance to the uncoated and coated tablets. It also improves flow of coated tablet thus helps in packaging of tablets.

  • Required less quantity of Colorcoat material (less weight gain) due to "Micronized particle size dispersion technology".
  • Low viscosity allows higher concentration of solids and high spray rates, which reduces process time, save energy and increase productivity.
  • Better film strength, flexibility and adhesion.
  • Excellent color uniformity.
  • Better gloss.
  • No logo bridging and edge wear.

Pigments used in Colorcoat

Natural colors: These colors are synthetically prepared from organic and inorganic compounds, which are derived from animal, vegetable and mineral sources. These colors are less stable toward light and heat.

FD & C Lakes: Lakes are color additives produced by the absorption or precipitation of water soluble dye onto a hydrated base or substrate rendering the color insoluble in water. Lakes are more stable than the corresponding water soluble dyes.

Oxides: Iron oxides are produced from ferrous sulfate with the most common forms being that of yellow, red and black. Oxides are stable pigments.
We provide color guide to make it easy to the customer for selecting the shade of their choice.

Toxicity

Colorcoat range is a high molecular weight polymer so it can not be absorbed by body tissue and it is safe for human consumption. It has no physiological action at recommended dosage and is non toxic.

Storage

Store it at low temperature not exceeding 45°C. Protect from moisture.

Self Life

Two years from manufacturing date in intact condition.

Packing

5 kg, 10 kg and 20 kg corrugated box with polyethylene liner.
