Colorcon is excited to bring its most recent innovation to the market, a white TiO2-free Nutrafinish film coating with the most superior opacity available
Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is a useful material for providing exceptional brightness, whiteness, and opacity for tablet coatings. Although the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) considers TiO2 safe as a food additive, market pressures for label friendly ingredients have influenced the need for alternative ingredients to be used for tablets coatings. To address this need, in 2017 Colorcon launched Nutrafinish TiO2-free film coating, and since then we have continued to innovate and improve. Elimination of TiO2 provides manufacturers with an alternative coating finish that satisfies aesthetic appeal while addressing current market concerns. As dietary supplements are often dark or mottled in appearance, which makes total coverage challenging, there was still a need to continue to improve opacity while limiting the amount of coating needed. The newest white TiO2-free film coating from Colorcon now provides superior opacity for tablet coatings, the best available in the market, whilst still meeting the requirement for clean label.
With a wide range of fully formulated coatings Colorcon provides the scope for customers to reduce complexity and time-to-market by delivering high quality products, with ingredients carefully selected from commonly used food ingredients or approved food additives which meet local regulatory requirements and support Clean Label claims. This is all backed by our superior and dedicated technical support, along with regulatory expertise.
