Because of its multifunctional character, silica has gained importance in the pharmaceutical industry as:
• A highly efficiency glidant • Tableting aid • Suspension aid disintegrant • Dragee
Silica is also used as carrier material for active agents because of its high adsorption capacity, controlled desorption, and improved compatibility.
SYLOID® silica excipients provide:
• Controlled particle size for more uniform blending resulting in improved content uniformity • Higher bulk density than alternate silica materials for cleaner work areas and reduced risk of cross-contamination • High adsorptive capacity to carry higher levels of liquids and active agents • Improved powder flow properties • Quicker tableting because of moisture adsorption • Better storage properties
