    Kollidon® 12 PF

    Low-molecular grade Kollidon®, intended for use as solubilizing agent, dispersant and crystallization inhibitor particularly for injectables. In addition applicable as pore former in solid dosage forms and viscosity enhancer in parenterals.

    Kollidon® 12 PF and Kollidon® 17 PF, our soluble low molecular and pyrogen-free Kollidons, deliver functionality to many different areas of formulation. 

    They can be used to stabilize micro-molecular structures in injectables and lyophilisates. They can also form hydrogen bonds with compounds with complementary structures for improved dissolution.

    At the same time, Kollidon® 12 PF and Kollidon® 17 PF serve as solubilizing agents and crystallization inhibitors particularly for injectables. These properties are of particular interest for antibiotics in solution or lyophylisate form. Kollidon® 12 PF and Kollidon® 17 PF are used in e. g. sulfonamide, melphalan, meclofenoxat, metroni- dazol, mistellectine, taurolidine and trimethoprim formulations.

    The Kollidon® portfolio of various PVP grades sets new standards in quality, purity and patient safety.
    Consistently high quality for reliable performance and formulation stability
    The original PVP from the industry’s most experienced team
    Pyrogen-free particularly suitable for parenteral formulations

    In the area of Instant & Modified release, Kollidon® 12 PF and Kollidon® 17 PF serve as pore former in solid oral dosage forms with sustained release, and allow viscosity enhancement in oral liquid & oral semi-solid dosage forms.

    Applications

    • Solubilizing agent
    • Dispersant
    • Crystallisation inhibitor
    • Pore former in solid oral dosage forms
    • Viscosity enhancement in oral liquid & oral semi-solid dosage forms
