Celotech MC/HPMC Pharmaceutical grade cellulose ethers can be heated and mixed with plasticizers for extrusion or molding into a wide range of physical forms. Formulators use such products to design single-unit matrix tablets, soft gel capsule replacements, and multi-particle delivery systems using extruded beads or shaped chips.
Controlled Viscosity in Liquid
In oral and topical liquids, Celotech cellulose ethers are excellent thickeners. Because they have surfactant properties, they can contribute to product stability. In products like antacids, Celotech cellulose polymers act as suspension agents; their water retention properties are useful in bulk laxatives. Cellulose products are also used as demulcents in ophthalmic solutions.
