    Excipients for Drug Formulation Kollicoat® MAE 100-55

    Kollicoat® MAE 100-55

    A complete match – just better. Kollicoat® MAE 100-55 combines two things hard to bring together – it can directly exchange the comparable pH 5.5 enteric release coating polymer in your commercial formulations, and still bring significant handling improvement to your operators because it does not dust at all.

    Kollicoat® MAE 100-55 is the latest addition to our comprehensive portfolio of functional excipients in our Instant & Modified Release Platform. It extends our offer of pH >5.5 enteric release products based on methacrylic acid-ethylacrylate copolymer, providing you even more flexibility.
