Tablets are coated for a variety of reasons. Tablets are often coated to modify the release of the active ingredient, to protect the active ingredient from light or moisture, or to mask a bitter taste in the tablet formulation. Tablets are also coated to improve swallowability. Coating of active ingredients is becoming increasingly important. This applies to combination products as well as to the combination of two incompatible active ingredients in one dosage form.
Tablets are the most important oral dosage form in the pharmaceutical industry and are often coated. Coating involves applying a thin film of one or more polymers and other functional excipients (colorants or humectants) to the tablet, which can perform a variety of functions.
In both the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries, efficient and flexible coating applications are required to meet stringent compliance and drug safety requirements.
Reasons for tablet coating:
- Colour masking
- As protection against, light, oxygen or moisture
- Delayed release of active ingredient; gastric juice resistance
- Taste masking
- Odour masking
- Improved swallowability
