Aqueous polymeric coatings for pharmaceutical dosage forms by Linda A. Felton, James W. McGinity

By Linda A. Felton, James W. McGinity

Aqueous-based movie coating has develop into regimen within the pharmaceutical undefined. This procedure removes using natural solvents and therefore avoids financial, environmental, and toxicological matters with regards to residual solvents and solvent restoration. Aqueous-based coating, besides the fact that, is advanced and lots of variables may possibly influence the ultimate product and its functionality. This fourth version of Aqueous Polymeric Coatings for Pharmaceutical Dosage Forms goals to supply perception into the criteria and parameters that are supposed to be thought of and regulated for the profitable improvement and commercialization of a covered product.

The fourth version has been revised and accelerated to mirror the newest clinical developments from the literature. The contributing authors clarify intimately, utilizing illustrated examples, acceptable steps to resolve and preferably steer clear of formula, processing, and balance difficulties and to accomplish an optimized dosage shape. alternate names and chemical names of commercially advertised coatings are used in the course of the textual content to assist familiarize the reader with some of the fabrics on hand for pharmaceutical purposes. This e-book could be a helpful source for someone within the pharmaceutical operating within the sector of aqueous-based movie coating.

Example text

In contrast, a pseudolatex is initially deposited as discrete polymer spheres, which must coalesce to form a continuous film. A plasticizer is often included in the formulation to promote the coalescence process. Chevalier et al. [5] defined four stages of the film formation process for pseudolatices: 1. Ordering and close packing of the particles due to water evaporation to give a face-centered cubic construction 2. Deformation and filling the voids left by the removal of water to give a foam structure 3.

The mixture enthalpy, ΔH, depends on the relative solubility parameters (δ1 − δ2), and the best theoretical case is a binary mixture miscible in all proportions (δ1 = δ2). Mixture entropy is positive and the Gibbs free energy (G = H − TΔS) is negative. 5. Plasticizers with solubility parameters close to that of the polymer are generally considered to be more miscible. Plasticizer Incorporation: Mixing Time The mechanism of plasticization of pseudolatex dispersions needs to be contrasted with that of solvent systems.

Carlin, J. T. 14. Curing can be carried out by oven heating or in situ heating in a fluid-bed coater using increased fluidization to avoid pellet agglomeration. Coating is normally carried out below the Tg of the film to minimize tackiness, especially under the low bulk fluidization conditions in the slowly percolating pellet bed outside the Wurster column. , Opadry®) watersoluble polymer top coating can be applied to enable low fluidization curing above the Tg. 14 retested after storage at 40°C/75% RH for periods of up to 8 months.
