PHILOSOPHY BEHIND THE COATING

Features for powder aerosolization such as flowability and dispersibility are influenced by complex inter-related factors. For a given material, the magnitude of attractiive forces are mainly determined by the contact area between the particles.

Teicos Pharma makes use of this phenomenon by coating the particles with a rough nanocrystalline surface layer. By lowering the contact area, the particles need remarkably less energy to detach from each other and from surfaces during handling, dosing and delivery. Other factors influencing the performance of the inhalation powders then become significantly less important.The coating layer simultaneously provides excellent protection against the environment.
