Hydroxypropyl MethylCellulose

Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC)

Brief Introduction

SidleyCel® Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC) is non-ionic cellulose ether made from natural cotton fiber under series of chemical processing. It’s odorless, tasteless and non-toxic white powder, can be dissolved in cold water to form a transparent viscous solution with the properties of thickening, binding, dispersing, emulsifying, film coating, suspending, absorbing, gelling, water retention and colloid protection.

Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC) is a multi-functional pharmaceutical adjuvant which can be used as thickener, dispersant, emulsifier and film-forming agent. As film coating and binder, it can improve the dissolution rate of drugs. It can also be used as a suspension aid, host material in ophthalmic preparations and etc.

.Excellent workability: provide suitable viscosity, good plasticity and easy for construction.

.Good water retention: make the slurry fully hydrated, extend the open time and avoid cracking.

.Good slipping resistance: make slurry adhere to the surface strongly to prevent slipping.
