15 AquaPolish® STA – Fast and shiny coating

Achieving a shiny tablet surface with a fast application coating

BIOGRUND’s one-step film coating system AquaPolish® STA provides a fast release film on tablets, pellets and granules. The film forming polymer is a selected modified starch combined with plasticizers, pigments and other additives. It’s a unique, dry milled, homogeneous blend which gives your product a shiny smooth surface!

AquaPolish® STA has been developed for the fast coating of oral solid dosage forms. It is easily soluble and a reproducible high-quality film coating can be guaranteed. Due to its high solid content of 20–25% in the dispersion, a fast application at low process temperatures will improve your production process and save time. Additionally, your product gains a small barrier against moisture.

This coating with modified starch is an excellent solution for oral solid dosage forms where hypromellose reacts with the active pharmaceutical ingredient or with the tablet core (e.g. green tea extracts).

Regulatory and quality aspects:
AquaPolish® STA formulations are developed to meet the official regulatory requirements of the user’s country for pharmaceutical products and for nutritional or dietary supplements.
