Crospovidone is mainly used as a disintegrating agent for tablets, pills, granules, and hard capsules. It can be used in wet granulation, dry granulation and direct powder tabletting at a concentration of 2% -5%. It has good compressibility, can improve the stability, hardness, and friability of tablets, reduce chipping, and increase the tabletting pressure. It will only increase the tablet hardness without affecting the disintegration time. The disintegration performance of it is not affected by pH. At the same dosage, the disintegration speed is usually faster than starch, modified starch, croscarmellose sodium and methyl cellulose.
In addition, this product can also be used as a solubilizer for poorly soluble drugs, a solid dispersion carrier for immediate release drugs, and a swelling layer material for pulse preparations.
Highly effective disintegrant (commonly used in dispersible tablets):
Amoxicillin Dispersible Tablets
Poorly soluble drug solubilizer:
Telmisartan Dispersible Tablets
Solid dispersion carrier:
Cilostazol solid dispersible tablets
Other swelling materials such as pulse preparations
Crospovidone is known to form peroxides upon prolonged exposure to oxygen, and has strong hygroscopicity. As our commitment to ensure the quality and stability, our Crospovidone is packaged in 20kg drum with double layer low density polyethylene bag.
1kg/bag, 5kg/bag, 20kg/drum.
Crospovidone has strong hygroscopicity and should be stored in air-tight containers in a cool and dry place.
