Efficient, fast & reliable products? Why not!

Easy-to-use ready mixes for tableting. Tailor-made & easy to use.

Direct compression – easy & fast. For years it has been apparent that direct compression of oral dosage forms is becoming increasingly popular. New technologies and excipients make it possible to simplify this production stage. Some wet granulation products can now easily be converted to direct tableting.

Weighing, mixing, lubricating, pressing – sounds simple, it usually is. The success of a perfect direct compressed tablet depends on the amounts of active ingredients and excipients in the tablet mixture, their different particle sizes, flow and compression properties and sensitivities to moisture. Ultimately, the hardness of the tablets must be strong enough to exhibit a low degree of fragility. Thus, bursts at the band height and dust formation during further processing can be avoided. Nevertheless, the tablet should be easily divisible if it has a break notch. If retardation is desired, it should not miss the desired release profile.

Our excipient blends for direct tableting are tailored to these properties. They specifically affect the property that is to be improved, adjusted or eliminated. Our innovative tableting excipients help replace other undesirable excipients.

Ready-to-use – simply add 0.5 – 10 % of our binders and lubricants to the tablet mass and mix.

Tableting BIOGRUND

Dry binders

dry binder for high-dose active ingredient tablets
  • Enables the compressibility of normally non-compressible active ingredients in just one step.
  • Optimizes the flowability of the tablet mass.
  • Increases the tablet hardness.
  • Improves the friability of the tablet.
  • A wet granulation for drug isolation with an excipient is no longer necessary.
  • Delivers a granulated, homogeneous, dry milling of HPC/CMC, PVP/CMC or low viscosity HPC/HPMC.
Quality: P | F *

CompactCel® SIL
optimized flow properties & stability
  • Improves flowability of the tablet mass.
  • Better adsorption capacity (of liquids/moisture) & more stability.
  • Higher compression of the tablet mixture and active ingredient.
  • Optimized dissolution profile of the tablet.
  • Dry binder granulate of silicon dioxide and HPC/NaCMC or PVP/NaCMC.
  • A wet granulation for drug isolation with an excipient is no longer necessary.
Quality: P | F *

CompactCel® TC
taste-masking binder
  • Dry binder.
  • Neutralizes bad-tasting active ingredients. Important for uncoated tablets.

CompactCel® DIS
the efficient natural disintegrant

The certified organic (USDA) disintegrant enables a rapid break-up of solid dosage forms when they come into contact with moisture. Certification for the EU organic label will be available soon. To support your tablet-formulation in the clean label trend, CompactCel® DIS is formulated with ingredients from natural sources only. It is a good alternative for replacing synthetic disintegrants, like crosslinked polymers, crosscarmellose sodium or sodium starch glycolate. This natural tableting premix helps in the fast breakdown of the dosage form in the stomach upon ingestion so that the active ingredient becomes bioavailable and is readily absorbed. It can be also used in the formulation of oral disintegrating tablets (ODT) or chewing tablets.

CompactCel® DIS for direct compression possess several useful properties:
– good hydration
– poor solubility
– poor gel formation
– good compressibility and flow property
– faster therapeutic effect

Sustained release

CompactCel® SR
sustained drug release
  • Retardation. For a sustained release profile of the drug.
  • Forms a reliable gel film through which the active ingredient permanently diffuses.
  • Depending on the active ingredient (easily or poorly soluble), the gelation and thus the release profile can be adjusted.
  • Application is suitable for dry and wet granulation.
  • Fine, micronized and homogeneous dry trituration of HPMC & NaCMC.
  • Recommended dosage for tablet formulations: 10 – 30 %.

Tablet formulation

customized tablet formulation
  • Tailor-made premix, e. g. contains fillers, binders, lubricants, pigments and dyes.
  • One-Step. Only adding the active ingredient before production.
  • Use of only one excipient premix instead of several individual components.
  • Accelerates the tablet manufacturing process.
  • Reduces weighing errors & lumps.
  • Reduces production & analysis costs.
  • Provides consistency from batch to batch | consistent quality.
  • Produces homogeneous dry powder mixture.
