AquaPolish® STA
fast & shiny

The modified starch-based AquaPolish® STA is an excellent solution for solid oral dosage forms where hypromellose (HPMC) reacts with the drug or tablet core (e. g. green tea extracts).

  • High spray rate. The modified starch allows a solids content of 20-25% in the suspension.
  • Fast process. The film coating process can be performed by low process temperatures which shortens and simplyfies the process.
  • Aesthetics. The starch contained in the formulation automatically gives the film coating a light shine.
  • Protection. Achieves a small moisture barrier.

AquaPolish® MS
excellent moisture protection

Protecting moisture-sensitive substances from environmental influences is one of the biggest challenges in the pharmaceutical and nutritional supplements industry.
The coating of the tablet core, therefore, plays an important role in achieving an adequate moisture barrier. It improves tablet stability and provides protection to prevent drug degradation and prolong shelf life. Tablet cores with highly hygroscopic agents such as extracts or solid dosage forms that are marketed in countries with high humidity must be protected from moisture.
The selection of raw materials for the formulation of AquaPolish® MS is tailored to the respective active ingredient and the requirements of the customer.
