Distributed Polymers

Colorcon offers a portfolio of polymers for controlled release drug delivery systems along with application expertise to meet customers’ formulation needs and help speed their products to market.


First choice for the formulation of hydrophilic matrix systems, providing a robust mechanism for the extended/controlled release of drugs from oral solid dosage forms.


ETHOCEL™ products are water-insoluble polymers approved for global pharmaceutical applications and used in extended release solid dosage formulations.

AFFINISOL™ Solubility Enhancing Polymers

AFFINISOL™ polymers are uniquely tailored to address the solubilization requirement of poorly soluble APIs.


METHOCEL™ DC2 polymers enable manufacturers to replace costly wet granulation in matrix tablet production with cost effective dry granulation and direct compression techniques.


POLYOX™ Water-Soluble Resins (NF grades) are non-ionic poly (ethylene oxide) polymers. They are hydrophilic polymers available in a wide range of molecular weights with a history of successful use in extended release applications, including osmotic pump technologies.
