Ashland to expand PVPP production

WILMINGTON, US: Ashland Inc announced plans to expand production of Polyplasdone and Polyclar crosslinked polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVPP) at its manufacturing facility in Texas, in response to strong demand. The company plans to complete the addition of a new PVPP production unit at the site by late 2013. Polyplasdone PVPP is a synthetic polymer used globally as a tablet disintegrant and drug dissolution aid in a wide variety of over-the-counter and prescription drug products. 

“Over the next few years, Ashland expects steady growth in PVPP driven by an industry need for formulation ingredients that improve the dissolution of poorly soluble drugs and growth in emerging markets generated by increased demand for generic drug products and consumer demographics. Combining its industry-leading position as a producer of PVPP with its multiple technical support labs around the world, Ashland is well-suited to meet this increasing market demand,” said Jeff Wolff, Vice President, Pharmaceutical and Nutrition Specialties, Ashland Specialty Ingredients.
