POLYOX™ Water-Soluble Resins for Pharmaceutical Applications

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 and are supplied as white, free flowing powders. POLYOX offers a history of successful use in extended release applications, including osmotic pump technologies.

Other applications include hydrophilic matrices, gastro-retentive dosage forms, tamper-resistant technologies and other drug delivery systems such as transdermal and muco-adhesive technologies.

POLYOX water-soluble resins provide a number of benefits including:

  • Wide range of molecular weights for formulation flexibility
  • Versatile application in direct compression and granulation
  • Rapid hydration and swelling for use in osmotic pump technologies
  • Fast hydration and gel formation for use in hydrophilic matrices
  • Extreme hardness and virtually crush-proof for tamper-resistant technologies

Colorcon, through the Controlled Release Alliance, has exclusive, global sales and distribution rights for METHOCEL products from Dow Pharma & Food Solutions for use in controlled release applications.
