Dissolvable Films – Inactive

Adhesives Research custom develops and formulates inactive polymer coatings designed to erode/dissolve at pre-determined rates when introduced to biological fluids. This film technology can be provided as tacky or non-tacky formulations for use as protective wraps, carriers for drug components, or as a barrier film.

Benefits of this technology:

  • Controlled dissolution rates ranging from seconds to days
  • Dissolution may be triggered for a specific biological fluid, pH or other condition
  • Tailored adhesion or non-tacky formulations


  • Buccal delivery
  • Sublingual delivery
