Our Gantrez™ S polymer line of methyl vinyl ether and maleic acid copolymers are bioadhesives that function in wet environments. They serve as excellent film formers and mucosal adhesives. These polymers deliver and hold actives on mucus membranes.

Available as a solution and powders, Gantrez S copolymers are the free acid of Gantrez AN polymers. These copolymers are water-soluble resulting in clear, tacky solutions whose rheology can be modified with the addition of salts and bases.
