Our high performance Carbopol® polymer excipients have been used extensively in oral care applications for decades. Initially used in aqueous toothpaste formulations as a thickener and co-binder, our polymers are now used in a variety of oral gels, pastes, denture care products, and mouth rinses, including those with natural ingredients, whitening capabilities, and long-acting or retention properties.
The toughness and chemical resistance of our medical grade thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) enable applications such as invisible aligners/braces, retainers and mouthguards. In addition, our flexible yet strong TPU grades are ideal for orthodontic elastics as well as other oral devices.
