Excipients for Drug Formulation

Kollidon® 30 – The Original from BASF

Our medium-molecular povidone is used in endless ways in pharmaceutical formulations as binder, pore former, stabilizer, thickener, as solubilizing agent, crystallization inhibitor and many more. And with our trusted quality, it will always serve exactly what you intended it for.

The PVP that started it all. Invented by Walter Reppe over 75 years ago Kollidon® 30 is used successfully for decades in pharmaceutical formulations - the adhesive, film-forming, dispersing and thickening properties of soluble Kollidon® are used in tablet binding, sugar coating, film coating, solubilization, stabilization and numerous other ways. The grade of Kollidon® that is selected depends mainly on its molecular weight, as this dictates the viscosity, binding effect, the complexation capacity and how readily it is eliminated by the body. And thanks to the new PeroXeal™ packaging concept that dramatically reduces peroxide levels, Kollidon® 30 can now be used for entirely new applications.

The Kollidon® portfolio of various PVP grades sets new standards in quality, purity and patient safety.

  • The original PVP from the industry’s most experienced team
  • Consistently high quality for reliable performance and formulation stability
  • Cutting-edge PeroXeal™ packaging concept for greater stability & suitability for oxygen-sensitive APIs – opening the door for new applications

Major Applications of Kollidon® 30

The new PeroXeal packaging concept for pharmaceutical grades

Improving on a classic: the new PeroXeal packaging concept for Kollidon®

At BASF, we understand that quality and stability are crucial for maximizing patient safety. This is why Kollidon is manufactured to the most exacting of standards in a world-class plant. And our experts continue to innovate, improving and expanding our portfolio. The groundbreaking PeroXeal packaging concept effectively “seals” the product, marking the next stage in Kollidon’s evolution.

The aluminum-free PeroXeal bag features three different functional film layers complemented by inert gas flushing and heat sealing. The result: A significantly lower risk of oxidation and a shelf life of up to four years. This makes worrying about peroxide levels, K values, API degradation and contamination with aluminum flakes a thing of the past. What’s more, Kollidon’s enhanced stability opens the door for entirely new applications. For example, you can now use Kollidon as an alternative to cellulose when working with oxygen-sensitive ingredients. In addition, the bag’s transparent inner lining is compatible with NIR testing – so packaging can remain sealed until the product is actually being used, retaining Kollidon’s freshness. And best of all, the new packaging is available at no additional cost to the customer.
