You could be one of the key players in a global market and have a drug that works well, but if your tablets don’t present their quality on the outside, you run the risk of being left on the shelf.

You’ll never hear a patient raving about the effectiveness of the film coating on their medication, but you will hear them complain about tablets that don’t present themselves well.

Tablet coating makes your medications more effective. Sometimes that means masking a bad taste or unfavorable odor. Other times it means providing a timed release of the medication to control the dosage of the drug over an extended period of time. It could also just be there to protect fragile ingredients during transportation and throughout their shelf life. Whatever the reason, your choice of coating solution can be a major factor in the overall effectiveness of treatment for the end user.
