Advancements in Coating of Adhesives for Transdermal Drug Delivery – Scott Zwierlein, Coating Engineer, Frontier LLC

The quality and function demanded of Transdermal Drug Delivery Systems is becoming ever more stringent, both from government requirements and end users. Because of these increasing demands the application or coating of the transdermal adhesive has had to improve. The application of the adhesive to the liner must be done cleanly and accurately. With the high cost of active ingredients, it is also imperative that waste be minimized so that the manufacturer can stay competitive in the marketplace.

Our presentation will discuss the advancements in the coating of the Transdermal Drug Delivery Adhesives by comparing older, traditional methods such as roll and comma coating with new, alternative methods like slot-die coating. We will also discuss techniques for minimizing yield losses and scrap throughout the coating and converting process. Some topics include Skip Coating, precision die cutting, on-line thickness measurement and inspection.
