A high functionality tablet binder-diluent can offer far greater compatibility, low strain-rate sensitivity, better flow, less lubricant sensitivity and more densification and consolidation than conventional tableting ingredients
What self-respecting plant manager wouldn’t love to reduce tablet production costs while increasing output and improvement quality, without spending a penny? One nutraceutical company reaped this reward by switching to a high functionality tablet binder-diluent with far greater compatibility, low strain-rate sensitivity, better flow, less lubricant sensitivity and more densification and consolidation than conventional tableting ingredients.
'Some of the botanical materials that we try to compress are a challenge, especially since we prefer to use direct compression whenever possible,' explains the Vice President of Research and Development. 'The available standard excipients do not always meet up to the challenge posed by these new botanicals.
'Improved compression and higher throughput are always of paramount importance in an industry such as ours, and PROSOLV SMCC was one of the newer tableting binders we examined. We were very surprised and pleased about how it resolved many of our previously insoluble problems.'
