Colorcon and BASF Announce Collaboration to Develop Film Coating Applications Using Kollicoat® Smartseal 30 D
Date:10/20/2011

HARLEYSVILLE, Pa. and LUDWIGSHAFEN, Germany, Oct. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Colorcon, Inc. and BASF have announced a collaboration for the development of future film coating systems using Kollicoat® Smartseal 30 D, and a new Colorcon pre-formulated additive.

Colorcon has developed a pre-formulated additive system for use with Kollicoat Smartseal 30 D which enables efficient preparation and application of this polymer in taste masking applications. The pre-formulated additive lowers the number of materials to be dispensed by 50% and reduces the preparation time by almost 40%.

"We have chosen Kollicoat Smartseal 30 D because it is the best-in-class reverse enteric polymer for taste masking," said Kamlesh Oza, General Manager Film Coating at Colorcon. "Kollicoat Smartseal 30 D is the first water-based dispersion having both taste masking and moisture barrier properties. It was developed to simplify and accelerate aqueous film coating operations, and opens new doors for formulating tablet, pellet, and particle coatings. Our collaboration to develop the additive will bring batch-to-batch color consistency, performance, speed and simplicity enabling easy reconstituting of the film former in pharmaceutical coating operations while maintaining functionality."

"Smartseal 30 D is the latest innovation in our Kollicoat portfolio, which completes the formulator toolbox by adding taste masking and moisture protection to the functionalities. We are very happy that the market leader in film-coating will closely collaborate with us in this application area," said Dr. Ralf Fink, Vice President Global Marketing Pharma Ingredients at BASF.

During the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists meeting in Washington, D.C. next week, both companies will present some of the latest research on Kollicoat Smartseal 30 D.  Colorcon will present a poster entitled "Performance Characteristics and Formulation of Kollicoat Smartseal 30 D."  BASF will have a poster with the title "Taste-masking of crystals by coating with an innovative methacrylate copolymer."
