BASF Has Solutions For Instant, Modified, Or Enteric Release Formulations

Instant Release

BASF offers a highly efficient, multifunctional instant release polymer portfolio. 

Instant release is the most used release profile for solid oral dosage forms. Whether you are looking for an instant release coating for moisture protection or effective taste-masking – we have a solution.


Product Highlight

Modified And Sustained Release

BASF has many options that help you to formulate the exact modified or sustained release profile you need without causing unwanted dose dumping.

Sustained release applications can boost patient acceptance since these formulations are designed to release the drug over extended periods of time. Both reservoir and matrix systems can be combined with hydrophilic or hydrophobic pore formers to further fine-tune drug release rates.

Top Products

Kollidon® SR
A matrix former that provides superior sustained release in pH-indepdent environments; suitable for direct compression or hot melt extrusion.
Kollicoat® SR 30 D
A low viscosity, non-sticky aqueous dispersion of polyvinyl acetate that releases active ingredients precisely and evenly over a period of time at any pH.

Enteric Release

We offer functional excipients for enteric release profiles in both aqueous and powder form. 

Enteric release excipients delay the drug release until the dosage reaches the intestine. Enteric release polymers can also be used in delayed drug release formulations when combined with sustained release excipients.
