Functional Tablet Coating

Tablet coating ensures a high quality product and assists in the convenience of swallowing for the user. The core layer of the tablet is enrobed with a suitable coating medium to isolate the pharmaceuticals/nutritional ingredients in the tablet from the environment, thereby preventing moisture, light, air oxidation, enhancing product preservation, and even masking unpleasant odor.

Coatings are custom tailored to the clients needs and can be color matched for marketing and branding purposes.

Gemini uses a water-based (aqueous) film coating system across all its coating suites, complete with HEPA filtration. This water-based approach will eliminate any residual solvents commonly left behind from processes referred to as “pharmaceutical glaze” or “shellac” which requires solvents. The water used in coating operations is manufactured right onsite at Gemini from our USP Purified Water System ensuring the highest quality.

Coatings are custom tailored to the clients needs and can be color matched for marketing and branding purposes. Diverse color options include Food, Drug and Cosmetic approved colors along with natural options or even complete organic coating systems. Gemini also offers enteric coating for controlled release profiles to withstand disintegration in acidic gastric environments and instead breakdown in the alkaline environment of the small intestine to properly administer the target nutrients or medicine.
