The ready-to-use powder premix of natural ingredients decreases friction at the interface between tablet and die wall, reduces wear on punches and prevents sticking to punch faces. By eliminating magnesium stearate, which is often the cause of many problems with solid oral dosage forms, undesirable side effects can be reduced to a minimum. It can also be used as an alternative to stearic acid. The compound provides a good lubrication without influencing the requirements of the tablet. A fluent compression process will be achieved.
Also for the filling and closing of hard gelatin capsules it acts as an excellent lubricant to achieve a smooth filling process.
Flow aid, glidant, replacement of silicon dioxide
A separating agent which loosens up powder mixtures and improves their flowability. It replaces synthetic excipients like silicon dioxide – for a consumer-friendly label. CompactCel® FLO provides a clean funnel flow of the powder mass to be processed during both tableting process and capsule filling. A bridge formation during flow from hopper can be avoided.
Formulations in natural or organic food quality available.
Certified with the EU and US label for organic food
The impact of CompactCel® FLO on powder flowability (Angle of repose) of MCC 102 was studied. The measured parameter clearly showed the effects of CompactCel® FLO on the powder cohesivity. It is comparable with the effect of silicon dioxide.
Dry powder compound of additives for less problems due to humidity in the powder blend. Superior moisture absorbent properties to prevent clumping of the powder before and during the tableting or capsule filling process. Acts loosening and improves the flowability of the blend.
Dry powder compound of additives for oil absorption. The high absorbent properties are used to make oily substances suitable for the tableting or capsule filling process. Prevents clumping of the powder oil blend.
Depending on project requirements CompactCel® MAB can be based on synthetic ingredients or natural/organic food raw materials (silica free, for clean label).
Premixed tablet/encapsulation formulation
Customized tableting premix based on natural or organic ingredients. The fully formulated tableting/encapsulation dry powdered compound exists of e.g. filler, binder, glidant, lubricant, pigment/dye. These ingredients contain the necessary characteristics to produce a label-friendly and high-quality solid oral dosage form.
Easy handling and processing, economic savings and higher productivity because it’s a ready-to-use and tailor-made system.
