Disclaimer

All the information provided is in accordance with the present state of our knowledge. Nonetheless, we disclaim any warranty or liability whatsoever and reserve the right, at any time, to effect technical alterations. The information provided, as well as the product's fitness for an intended application, should be checked by the buyer in preliminary trials. Contractual terms and conditions always take precedence.

1.Pharmaceutical use

 

SILFAR® E 1049 comprises components compliant with the requirements laid down in the corresponding EP and USP monographs and can be used as an excipient in pharmaceutical products but not as an active pharmaceutical ingredient.

 

Besides, we recommend the SILFAR® E 1049 silicone fluid emulsion for applying a water-repellent coating to glassware used for pharmaceutical products, e.g. bottles, vials and ampoules. Suitable measures must be taken to ensure that the active ingredient in SILFAR® E 1049 is completely and permanently immobilized on the surface of the product in question.

 

The emulsion may be diluted further with water. Good results are produced by an active content of only 0.5%.

 

2.Use for food processing

 

SILFAR® E 1049 is a silicone fluid emulsion based on E 900 and may only be used as a processing aid for food. Therefore, it has to be ensured by the producer of the foodstuff, that only technically unavoidable traces of SILFAR® E 1049 remain in the final food.
