Celopre Cellulose ethers form strong films with good adhesion. They can provide taste-masking qualities and act as barriers for water-sensitive drugs or components. Celopre cellulose ethers increase compressive strength and reduce friability yet they increase overall tablet size by only 1-3 mm. Coatings containing Celopre cellulose ethers can be applied in one pan, shortening coating time, reducing skilled operator requirements, and permitting the use of automated coating systems.
