Lubrizol Advanced Materials, U.S.A
Lubrizol is a global producer of high performance pharmaceutical ingredients that have a proven track record of use in liquid, semisolid and bioadhesive dosage forms. Building on their strong foundation in formulating semi-solid products, they have expanded their knowledge and increased our focus on oral solid dosage applications. This is a natural progression of our technical development activities because the polymer properties that are important in formulating semi-solid products (rapid swelling and hydrogel formation) are also important in controlling drug release in solid dosage forms.
