Kollicoat® SR 30 D is an aqueous dispersion with a solids content of 30%. The low viscosity product has a weak characteristic odor and a milky white or slightly yellowish appearance. The dispersion consists of about 27% polyvinyl acetate, 2.7% povidone and 0.3% sodium lauryl sulfate. Kollicoat® SR 30 D is miscible with water in any ratio while retaining its milky-white appearance. Mixing the product with ethanol or isopropyl alcohol in a 1:5 ratio produces a slightly turbid and somewhat viscous solution; a solution in acetone is more turbid. On addition of further organic solvents the polymer precipitates out but then dissolves when further solvent is added. It is insoluble in dilute alkaline or acidic solutions.


  • Amenable as a Wet binder for granulation processes and/or and coating applications for sustained release
  • Drug release profile can be easily optimized with compatible pore formers
  • Low viscous aqueous dispersion of polyvinyl acetate for easy Homogenization/Mixing
  • High binding capacity and plasticity lead to robust films in tablets and pellets
  • Due to the polymer's high plasticity and flexibility, drug release from pellets and tablets are not significantly affected by compression force
  • Provides moderate taste-masking in multiple dosage forms
