Hypromellose also known as HPMC is a cellulose ether derivative. Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) or hypromellose can be used as a thickening agent, binder, film former, and hydrophilic matrix material. The hydrophilic matrix system is the simplest sustained release technology for oral dosage forms, consisting essentially of a drug and a water soluble, highly viscous polymer. It does not require any other excipient. Hydrocel range of HPMC is a “tailored to perform” range of cellulose ethers having their specifications in line with multiple pharmacopoeia while keeping the results in a narrow range to ensure consistency in batch to batch results is achieved every time. With narrow parameter range Hydrocel range of Cellulose & Polymers are available in different grades to support various different application/ They have gained excellent feedback from the customers and have excellent performance results. HPMC also gives excellent finish for tablet and pellet coatings.
