Brochure Insta coat E-series

In continuation with its efforts to support pharmaceutical industry with the innovative products for film coating of tablets, Ideal Cures Pvt. Ltd an India based excipient manufacturing organization, introduces a new line of film coating materials under the brand Instacoat E Series. The products in E Series are a complete solution to the customer’s expectations for an ideal material. The philosophy behind E Series is Economic and Ecological (environmental and user friendly).

New e-series is a range of high performance coating products developed under Instacoat brand and consist of four coating systems.

Instacoat EHP 250 High Performance Aqueous Film coating System
Instacoat EMB Efficient Moisture Barrier Aqueous Film Coating System
Instacoat EEN Optimized Weight Gain Hydro-alcoholic Enteric Film Coating System
Instacoat EHA High Adhesion Aqueous Film Coating System

This will be launched in the coming CPhI Mumbai (Nov’ 30 – Dec’ 2, 2011), at Booth G28, expert team of scientists will discuss product benefits. INSTACOAT EHP 250 is a single polymer (PVA- Poly-Vinyl Alcohol) based fully aqueous coating system. The best advantage offered by the material is that the coating can be completed in less than 50% of the time, currently required with best of the materials available in the market. The product will be moderately priced, which will be suited to practically all the drug substances. The energy and time requirements are going to be reduced to very low due to fast drying of the material and the process-ability at a very high concentration and faster spray rates. The moisture barrier offered by the film coating is going to be much superior, which should help people to review the packaging components for coat savings.

Other products in the E Series spectrum are EMB, EEN and EHA. EMB is specifically developed for exclusive moisture barrier properties for highly moisture sensitive drugs, as an aqueous and fast coating system. EEN is optimized enteric coating achieved with minimum weight gain for the enteric or delayed release products. EHA is a high adhesion, immediate release HPMC based film coating system. Therefore, disintegration time and dissolution rates of the tablets products are not affected with film coatings using EHP 250 and EMB. Upon experimentation, it was noted that disintegration of the EHP and EMB film coated tablet is not affected even at a coating weight gain upto 4%.

Speaking on the pre-launch occasion at a gathering Mr. Suresh Pareek, Managing Director said that, “This 4th generation film coating system will define the new standards of film coating systems. While others have been stumbling to develop and copy the 3rd generation coating system, we are launching Instacoat E Series. It definitely moves the bar ahead for the competition and will likely cause them to go back to the labs yet again.”
