Abstract: Film Coating for Protection during In-Use Applications

Film Coating for Protection during In-Use Applications

Film coating provides a number of advantages from product protection and packaging efficiencies, through improved swallowability, better differentiation and patient compliance.  Barrier coatings provide the final layer of moisture protection after the product is removed from the primary packaging.  Recent advances in moisture barrier coating systems are presented.
