Enhance your oral formulations with high quality ingredients
Consumers prefer gelatin capsules over other dosage forms, so the development of drugs in this form is more relevant than ever.
CARBOWAX™ SENTRY™ LPEG and MPEGs are pharmaceutical excipients which can be used in the manufacturing of capsules as hydrophilic fillers for solubilization of the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API), but also as plasticizer in the coating of the gelatin capsules.
CARBOWAX™ SENTRY™ Polyethylene Glycols (PEGs) have a long history of use in capsule formulations because they meet all compendial requirements and:
- Our low molecular weight PEGs can facilitate formulation of gelatin capsules when working with poorly soluble APIs
- When selecting our low aldehydes grades, it can help you reduce the risk of cross linking of the shell
- Our grades have low impurity profiles allowing more consistent manufacturing and longer shelf-life of your drugs
- It can help you improve your residual solvent profile by lowering the Ethylene Glycol (EG) levels in your formulation.
Our PEGs meet USP-NF and EP monographs required for pharmaceutical applications, and we offer regional regulatory and technical support.
