A polymeric multi-talent suitable for a large variety of applications, i.e. Kolliphor® P 338 can be used as solubilizer, emulsifier and plasticizer.
Kolliphor® P 338
Kolliphor® P 338 is used primarily as thickening agent and gel former, but also as co-emulsifier and consistency enhancer in creams and liquid emulsions, i.e. intravenous fat emulsions. Owing to its ability to affect viscosity, Kolliphor® P 338 is also suitable as stabilizer for topically administered suspensions. As solubilizing agent maintains the clarity of elixirs and syrups. Moreover, it is also used as a wetting agent in eye drops, ointments, suppository bases, gels, and as tablet binder and coating. As plasticizer in solid dispersions Kolliphor® P 338 is suitable for use in melt granulation, spray drying and hot melt extrusion processes.
