Tablet Coating: color variation Defects

During Tablet coating , color variation defect is observed sometimes.

 This defect is caused by improper mixing on the tablets, or by insufficient coating and also caused by uneven spray pattern on tablets.

 After coating the migration of soluble dyes or any additives during drying may give tablet a spotted and mottled apperation.

Due to this defect color variation is observed.

Tablet coating: "Orange Peel Defect"

During tablet coating Orange peel defect is observed due to inadequate spraying or spreading of the coating solution.

Before the drying this coating solution causes bumpy or orange peel effect on the coating.

It is caused due to high spray rate and high pressure.

This defect can be prevented by thinning of the polymer solution and adding additional solvents.

Polymers applications in everyday life

Polymers have many applications in various fields as well as in everday life.

Let us check it out some uses of polymers.

 Polymers are used in clothing, oil recovery, food and flavours, agriculture, packaging, consumer items like clothing, toys, skin care

Polymers also used in automative parts, pipes, parts, additives etc.

Also used in electronics as well as in medicines such as in formulation of proteins, antibiotics, gel caps or in coating of tablets.
