Coating Technology

A film coating is a thin polymer-based layer applied to a solid dosage form such as a tablet, granule, pellet or other particle

Coating technologies at losan

The aims of coating range from simply masking the taste or odour of drugs to the sophisticated controlling of site and rate of drug release.

At Losan film coating (solvent and waterbased) is possible using either fluid bed systems or drum coater technology.

The different coating technologies require a high knowledge regarding the development of reproducible and controllable production processes.

Coating for taste masking

Our technologies and dosage forms
  • Fluid bed coating (solvent and water based) of granules, pellets and other particles
  • Tablet coating using drum coater
  • Hot melt coating established in R&D

Coating for customised release

Our technologies and dosage forms
  • Fluid bed coating of functional, release-controlling polymers or protective coatings onto drug-layered cores, pellets, granules, or crystals. These multiparticulate systems provides advanced control of drug delivery and optimizes release profiles for drugs and drug combinations
  • Tablet coating of functional, release-controlling polymers or protective coatings onto tablets and mini tablets
