MEICELL®HPMC/HEC Pharmaceutical grade cellulose ethers can be heated and mixed with plasticizers for extrusion or molding into a wide range of physical forms.
Formulators use such products to design single-unit matrix tablets, soft gel capsule replacements, and multi-particle delivery systems using extruded beads or shaped chips.
Controlled Viscosity in Liquid
In oral and topical liquids, MEICELL® Duracoat series cellulose ethers are excellent thickeners. Because they have surfactant properties, they can contribute to product stability.
In products like antacids, MEICELL® Duracoat series cellulose polymers act as suspension agents; their water retention properties are useful in bulk laxatives.
MEICELL® Duracoat series are also used as demulcents in ophthalmic solutions.
