METHOCEL™ Premium DC2 Cellulose Ethers

Now available as directly compressible grades, METHOCEL™ DC2 polymers deliver exceptional flow properties and process capability as well as consistent modified release performance for matrix formulations.   METHOCEL™ DC2 will enable manufacturers to replace costly wet granulation in matrix tablet production with cost effective dry granulation and direct compression techniques.

METHOCEL™ DC2 helps you enjoy the benefits of dry powder processing techniques:

  • improved powder flow
  • lower manufacturing costs by up to 60%
  • shorten development time
  • results in more reproducible and robust tablet properties
  • better formulation option for heat and moisture-sensitive APIs
  • no additives, means no regulatory hurdles, as METHOCEL™ DC2 is pure HPMC

Three direct compression grades of METHOCEL™ DC2 are now available: K100 LV, K4M and K100M; chemically identical to current METHOCEL™ Premium products and meet USP, PhEur and JP specifications.
