CennloseTM cellulose ethers are water-soluble polymers derived from cellulose, the most abundant naturally available polymer. Cellulose unlike any other types of natural polymers, such as starch and gums, fails to dissolve in water. CennloseTM cellulose ethers when dissolved in water, offers a variety of functions such as thickening, surface activity, protective colloid, water retention, shape retention, etc. These functions can be used in a wide variety of industries.
For application in the pharmaceutical Divnova offers the following range of cellulose ethers under the CennloseTM brand:
|Methyl Cellulose (MC)
||15 – 1,00,000
|Ethyl Cellulose (EC)
||5 – 300
|Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC)
||800 – 20,000*
|Hydroxyproxyl Cellulose (HHPC)
||75 - 6500
|Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC)
||400 – 1,00,000
|Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose phthalate (HPMCP)
||32 - 204
CennloseTM is used a variety of roles in the pharmaceutical ingredient with some specific applications such as intestine dissolving-coating material, stomach shellac, and eye-droplets. The primary functions of CennloseTM in the pharmaceutical industry are increasing bioavailability of a drug / formulation, acting as a drug delivery mechanism, and tablet formation. These functions are achieved by using the CennloseTM as a :
Apart from the properties of CennloseTM mentioned above, the range of cellulose ethers is also valued for reducing plasticizer use, improving appearance, plasticity, and superior quality.
The processes applied for manufacturing CennloseTM make the precision-matching possible, which is why our brand of cellulosic products are in abundant use in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products.
