CARBOWAX SENTRY PEGs are used for 3 main purposes in the pharmaceutical industry:

(1)  As excipient
  • bases in ointments and suppositories.
  • binders and coatings in tableting.
  • drug solubiliser / carriers in liquid preparations (syrups and elixirs) and gelatine capsules.
  • granulation aid

(2)  As active ingredient
  • PEG laxatives / colonic lavage
  • ophthalmic solutions at 0.2 – 1%

(3)  Particularly for CARBOWAX SENTRY MPEGs, as chemical intermediate, in the synthesis of pharmaceutical actives
  • esterification
  • carbonate and carbamate formation
  • PEG / protein conjugates (PEGylation).

OPTIM Synthetic Glycerine 99.7% USP /EP
An excellent feedstock for high-class pharmaceutical products
Its main use is as an excipient or inactive ingredient in pharmaceutical formulations. OPTIM™ Synthetic Glycerine has a distinctively high, consistent purity and stability, making it a versatile ingredient in highly sensitive pharma applications. It also serves as a solvent for active ingredients, an antimicrobial preservative, a plasticizer, a viscosity-increasing agent, an emollient, a humectant and a sweetening agent in different concentrations up to 50%.

OPTIM™ Synthetic Glycerine, however, has a proven track record for absence of microbiological impurities and for long-term stability. OPTIM™ Synthetic Glycerine also has exceptional sensory properties, i.e. virtually no odour and a consistently sweet taste. OPTIM™ Synthetic Glycerine is manufactured according to current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) based on the IPEC-PQG Good Manufacturing Practices Guide for Pharmaceutical Excipients 2006. OPTIM™ Synthetic Glycerine is classified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) and complies with the compendial specifications in USP and EP. OPTIM™ Synthetic Glycerine is listed in the U.S. FDA’s inactive ingredients database for use in:

  • Dental pastes
  • Inhalations
  • Nasal and opthalmic preparations
  • Suspensions and tabletes
  • Topical
  • Buccal preparations
  • Injections
  • Oral capsules
  • Otic

Polypropylene Glycol- PPG
Polypropylene glycols (PPGs) are:
  • 100% active liquids
  • compatible with a wide range of processes
  • inert and stable foam control agents
  • low in toxicity
  • non-corrosive
  • nonionic
  • pH stable
  • water insoluble with low surface tension, so they spread quickly across a liquid surface
  • PPG 2000 is widely used as an antifoam agent or defoamer in fermentation process. Eg. Penicillin G.
  • PPGs are approved under certain FDA regulations for indirect food use.
  • PPG 2000 can also be useful in cosmetic preparations as a substitute or partial replacement for castor oil , mineral oil or higher priced synthetics.
  • PPG is used a thickener, a co-solvent and as a stabilizer in various cosmetic formulations.
