METHOCEL™ Premium Cellulose Ethers (Low Viscosity)

 

METHOCEL™ Premium grades are well established for use in the pharmaceutical industry. There are two premium types, methylcellulose (MC) and hypromellose (HPMC), meeting USP, JP and Ph. Eur. standards.

Applications

Tablet Binder

  • METHOCEL™ E5LV and E15LV may be used as binders in the wet granulation of tablets at a level of 3-5% of finished tablet weight.

  • E15LV produces stronger granules compared to those made with E5LV, which means disintegration and dissolution times may be affected as harder tablets are produced.
