Manufacturing of FDF :: 

1.HOT MELT EXTRUSION METHOD- In the extrusion process the API and other ingredients are mixed in dry state, subjected to heating process and then extruded out in molten state. In this process, solvents are completely eliminated. The films are further cooled and cut to the desired size. The high temperature used in this process may degrade thermolabile APIs. Manufacturing of FDF : 12/17/2011 21

2 : Solving Casting: 

Preparation of the casting solution, Deareation of the solution, Transfer of the appropriate volume of solution into a mold, Drying the casting solution, Cutting the final dosage form to contain the desired amount of drug, Packaging. 2 : Solving Casting 12/17/2011 22

3. Semisolid casting: 

Water soluble polymers are dissolved in water Solution added to solution of acid insoluble polymer which was prepared in NH4OH,NaOH. Plasticizer is added to obtain gel mass. The prepared gel mass is cast into films. Thickness : 0.015-0.05 inch 3. Semisolid casting 12/17/2011 23

4. Rolling method: 

A solution or suspension containing the drug is rolled on a carrier. Solvent : water or water and alcohol The film is dried on the rollers and cut into desired size. 4. Rolling method 12/17/2011 24

Evaluation of FDF :: 

1.Thickness 2.Tensile strength = load at failure × 100 strip thickness × strip width 3.Percent elongation 4.Tear resistance 5. Folding endurance 6.Dissolution test 7.Content uniformity 8.Disintegration time Evaluation of FDF : 12/17/2011 26


1.THICKNESS The thickness of strip can be measured by micrometer screw gauge at different strategic locations. This is essential to assure uniformity in the thickness of the film as this is directly related to the accuracy of dose. Evaluation of FDF : . 12/17/2011 27


Tensile strength is the maximum stress applied to a point at which the strip specimen breaks. It is calculated by the applied load at rupture divided by the cross-sectional area of the strip as given in the equation below: Load at failure × 100 Strip thickness × Strip width 2.TENSILE STRENGTH Tensile strength = 12/17/2011 28


When stress is applied, a strip sample stretches and this is referred to as strain. Strain is basically the deformation of strip divided by original dimension of the sample. Generally elongation of strip increases as the plasticizer content increases Increase in length of strip × 100 Initial length of strip 3.PERCENT ELONGATION % elongation = 12/17/2011 29


Tear resistance of plastic film or sheet is a complex function of its resistance to rupture. Basically very low rate of loading 51 mm (2 in.)/min is employed and is designed to measure the force to initiate tearing. The maximum stress or force (that is generally found near the onset of tearing) required to tear the specimen is recorded as the tear resistance value in Newton (or pounds-force). 4.TEAR RESISTANCE 12/17/2011 30


Young's modulus or elastic modulus is the measure of stiffness of strip. It is represented as the ratio of applied stress over strain in the region of elastic deformation Slope of stress-strain curve × 100 Strip thickness × cross-head speed 5.YOUNG'S MODULUS Young’s modulus = 12/17/2011 31


Folding endurance is determined by repeated folding of the strip at the same place till the strip breaks. The number of times the film is folded without breaking is computed as the folding endurance value. 6. FOLDING ENDURANCE 12/17/2011 32


Dissolution testing can be performed using the standard basket or paddle apparatus described in any of the pharmacopoeia. The dissolution medium will essentially be selected as per the sink conditions. Many times the dissolution test can be difficult due to tendency of the strip to float on to the dissolution medium when the paddle apparatus is employed . 7.DISSOLUTION TEST 12/17/2011 33

Evaluation of FDF :: 

8.DISINTEGRATION TIME Although, no official guidance is available for films strips. Pharmacopoeial disintegrating test apparatus may be used for this study. Typical disintegration time for strips is 5–30 s 9.CONTENT UNIFORMITY- Determined by any standard assay method of API in any standard pharmacopoeia. Limit of content uniformity is 85–115 percent Evaluation of FDF : 12/17/2011 34
