Capsules are a great dosage form to improve patient compliance, as they are tasteless, odorless and easy to swallow. For capsule producers, they provide an economic and easy to store option while requiring a minimum amount of excipients. 

Dow has been a leading provider of METHOCEL™ HPMC based solutions to capsule producers for over a decade. We work closely with our customer partners to find the best METHOCEL™ solution for their capsule need. We help them address emerging trends and work with them to optimize their end product performance and total cost of ownership.

In addition to METHOCEL™, Dow’s portfolio of solutions for capsules includes CARBOWAX™ SENTRY™ PEG used as plasticizers and solubilizers, ENTERACT™ HPMCAS polymers for flexible coatings in enteric delivery, and AFFINISOL™ polymers that demonstrate a good performance for hard shell capsule fillings.
