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 ranulated 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.
