22 CompactCel® – Free flowing binding agent
BIOGRUND’s one-step binding agent CompactCel® provides an easy to use, granulated and homogeneous compound of PVP/NaCMC or HPC/NaCMC, which acts as a perfect dry binder.
With CompactCel® it is possible to produce direct compressed tablets containing excipients and a high content of active ingredients (which are normally incompressible) in one step. A wet granulation step to isolate the active ingredients with an excipient is in most cases not needed. Due to the increased particle size, the granulated compound has optimized flow properties.
CompactCel® increases the hardness and improves the friability of the tablet. BIOGRUND recommends using 2–5% within the core formulation to achieve best results. Both compositions can be used for pharmaceutical and nutritional applications.
Regulatory and quality aspects: All CompactCel® formulations are developed to meet the official regulatory requirements of the user’s country for pharmaceutical products and for nutritional or dietary supplements.
