Solutions For Topical Polymeric Films And Transdermal Patches

Topical polymeric films and transdermal patches are innovative dosage forms utilizing unique technologies to achieve dermal drug delivery.

While topical polymeric films form intact, transparent drug delivery systems on the skin surface, transdermal patches utilize adhesive matrix technology to deliver active pharmaceutical ingredients through the skin.

Due to their benefits such as physical barrier formation, ease of application, and reduced dosing frequency, topical polymeric films and transdermal patches are often associated with improved patient compliance.

Develop a broad range of topical polymeric films and transdermal patches with our diverse selection of film formers, matrix formers, plasticizers, and solvents.
