Well-recognized product that can do it all

METHOCEL™ cellulose ethers are water-soluble polymers derived from cellulose. The METHOCEL™ product range encompasses methylcellulose and hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (hypromellose) – each available in different grades to address a wide range of applications including tablet coatings, granulation, controlled release, drug layering, vegetarian hard-shell capsules and amorphous drug stabilization.

Reliable and multi-functional

METHOCEL™ products have been in continuous production for more than 70 years with production facilities and deep product expertise located around the globe.

The METHOCEL™ Premium family of water-soluble polymers for pharmaceutical applications offers exceptional flexibility and a broad range of properties typically not found in other water-soluble polymers. In many applications, two, three or even more ingredients may be needed to do the same job performed by one METHOCEL™ product. That means one ingredient can do the job of many, saving money and time.
