Ensuring the precision you need – every time.

BASF’s broad portfolio of functional excipients for instant and modified release dosage forms allows for a wide range of formulation possibilities, enabling you to obtain your target release properties.

Our committment to functional excipients began eighty years ago with our invention ofPVP(Kollidon® 30),最广泛使用的辅料之一ulating oral solid dosage pharmaceuticals. We have continued the tradition of innovation, which has expanded our portfolio to include multifunctional excipients such as Kollicoat® IR, Kollidon® VA64 and Ludiflash®. Our products reflect our dedication to highly effective, reliable, and resource-efficient solutions that help you confidently design the dosage form that you need.
