VIVAPHARM® PVPP

Crospovidone

VIVAPHARM® PVPP, Crospovidone, is unsurpassed in its performance and versatility as a superdisintegrant in formulations. 

It combines different mechanisms to achieve rapid tablet disintegration at low concentrations (1-5%). Due to its viscoelasticity, VIVAPHARM® PVPP is highly compactable, resulting in robust tablets with increased tensile strength and reduced friability. Scanning electron microscope images of VIVPHARM® PVPP show a granular and porous structure with a large surface area. It enhances the dissolution of poorly soluble drug actives and due to its non-ionic property, it does not bear any risk of interaction with cationic APIs. 

VIVAPHARM® PVPP is available in two particle sizes to serve different application requirements. 

VIVAPHARM® PVPP offers:

  • Rapid disintegration at low concentrations (1-5%)
  • Functions via a combination of disintegration mechanisms (wicking, shape recovery, and swelling), thus imparting its unsurpassed versatility as a superdisintegrant in formulations 
  • Suitability for use in direct compression, wet granulation, and dry granulation 
  • Increased tablet tensile strength and reduced friability due to high compressibility 
  • No gel formation even at higher concentrations (10%) – ideal for ODTs
