GRACE® molecular sieves and silica gels’ wide range of uses in the pharmaceutical packaging industry ensures that drug products are protected from moisture, enabling them to preserve their shelf-life.
Grace’s adsorbents products are used to manage moisture within the packaging of pharmaceutical products, which can enter through the walls of the packaging or be released by the drug. Our products can be used in capsules, packets and bags can be integrated into closures caps, or can be used as embedded products into the plastic matrix of the packaging. We offer the following products, depending on the application properties required:
- SAFETYSORB® Molecular Sieves: Provide a faster rate of adsorption to minimize product exposure even at low relative humidity
- Silica Gels: Provide a slower rate of moisture adsorption to facilitate easier handling
- SYLOSIV® Molecular Sieves: Adsorbent in powder form can be embedded directly into plastic packaging
Grace’s broad portfolio of pharmaceutical solutions includes custom engineered silica supporting purification, formulation, and drug delivery. Our Fine Chemical Manufacturing Services (FCMS) business is a leading U.S-based CDMO. We also engineer products used in pharmaceutical packaging. Discover our portfolio of solutions
