Unique coating provides superior slip properties

May 30, 2016

At Kerry, we are committed to providing our customers with unique solutions to their formulation challenges.

Most often, large or irregular shaped tablets are very difficult to swallow, particularly for pediatric and geriatric patients. Traditional film coatings and waxes, are usually applied to these tablets, but these provide only a visual gloss, or color to the tablet, but do nothing to ease the difficulty of swallowing. 

We know how to create coatings that can provide more than just color or gloss to your tablet. Our scientists have developed SheffCoat™ Glide, a unique easy-glide one-step coating, that has excellent film forming properties and provides superior slip properties to the finished tablet.

Contact us about SheffCoat Glide. You'll find our solution is easy to swallow.
