A versatile, all-in-one binding agent that works with 99% of the products you need to produce effective tablets. This product has been specially designed to make tableting an easy process, as each ingredient contributes specific qualities to the formula. It contains Microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, Silica Di Oxide and Di-calicum Phosphate. These ingredients contain all the necessary characteristics to produce an effective and high-quality pill. because it has removed the stress of researching and developing a formula that will produce desired results, saving you time and energy for exacting the final ingredients of your next formula. Here’s what you can expect from this product: High flowability Strong bonding properties Lubricant Liquid absorption Effective Filler Read more to find out how each ingredient contributes to making this an effective formula: Microcrystalline Cellulose: Microcrystalline cellulose is an easy flowing powder that adds bulk and weight to your pill. It offers strong bonding qualities while retaining high flowability, which ensures it is spread evenly throughout your mixture. As an inert substance, it won’t react with other ingredients. It’s an all-around beneficial ingredient that makes every part of the creation process easier. Magnesium Stearate: Magnesium is the prime lubricant of the formula. It reduces friction at the point of contact between a tablets surface and the die wall during production, reducing damage to your freshly made tablet. It will prevent your formula from sticking to the machine and it is unaffected by process variables (for example, flow, temperature, pressure and level) which occur spontaneously. Magnesium stearate ensures that these surprises don’t affect the pill process. Just like microcrystalline cellulose, it has a high flow rate and is inert. Silica Di Oxide: Silicon dioxide absorbs liquid with ease, turning liquid ingredients into free flowing powders that can be implemented into your formula. It acts as a glidant, which will improve flow qualities but still promotes quick tableting. This ingredient will also reduce trace quantities of moisture which can damage your machines over time. Di-calcium Phosphate: A commonly used filler, this ingredients ensures that your tablets will have uniform content and increases compressibility capabilities. In other words, your tablets can be shaped and solidified with ease. Want a harder tablet? Apply more pressure. Want a softer tablet? Apply less pressure! These powders are all highly flowable and aside from Di-calcium phosphate, which shouldn’t be used with any acidic active ingredients, they are all inert. This makes your search for compatible ingredients much faster. They each provide unique benefits to your formula and ensure that your process will smoothly.
