VIVACOAT | Ready-to-Use Coating System

VIVACOAT ® protect E

VIVACOAT® protect E - Acid Protection

VIVACOAT® protect E is a white Ready-to-Use enteric coating system based on the globally accepted Metha-crylic Acid-Ethyl Acrylate copolymer (1:1). 

VIVACOAT® protect E dissolves at pH values exceeding 5.5. It was developed to protect acid-sensitive APIs against gastric fluids. Likewise, it protects the stomach against irritating actives by delaying drug delivery until the dosage form reaches the small intestine. 

The VIVACOAT® protect E system requires no neutralization. This enables an easy one-step reconstitution in water.

Due to the high polymer content of the coating suspension, VIVACOAT® protect E provides short process times.

VIVACOAT® protect E is the ideal solution for delayed release oral dosage forms. Time savings in developement and production are achieved by a simple, fast and robust coating process. Also beneficial are reduced raw material inventory and QC requirements.

We recommend VIVACOAT®  PS-1P-041 as sub-coat formulation, if the active ingredient has to be separated from the enteric polymer. For colored tablets, pigmented VIVACOAT®  A formulations are ideally suited to be used as a top-coat.
