When Coating runs smoothly: Enhance Your Coating Process with a new Particle designed PVA


In film coating applications, water-soluble polymers like polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) take a unique position. PVA can be used in immediate-release coatings and provide an exceptional moisture and oxygen barrier. A dedicated particle design allows rapid dissolving times and, due to the low viscosities of PVA solutions, high solid contents can be obtained leading to a high process efficacy.

This webinar covers coating formulation development as well as novel technologies for the characterization of coated tablets that can easily be implemented during production. Optical coherence technology (OCT) and laser scanning microscopy (LSM) can be valuable tools to assess the coating quality.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to create your coating formulation by utilizing a broad excipient toolbox
  • Potential advantages of PVA as a stable moisture and oxygen barrier to protect challenging drug substances
  • How to create the perfect surface finishing
  • How to utilize novel analytical technologies to boost your formulation development
