Parteck® SI, Merck’s outstanding, directly compressible sorbitol, is available in a variety of particle sizes and qualities for virtually any application you can imagine.
The unique particle structure of Parteck® SI – loosely packed, needle-like crystals – gives it some quite distinctive physical properties making Parteck® SI the perfect excipient for combining many ingredients into one elegant and robust tablet formulation.
Parteck® SI belongs to the Parteck® product family of excipients with unique particle properties developed using the Functional Particle Engineering® concept. This concept comprises a number of proprietary technologies which allows specialty excipients with outstanding functionalities especially for the design of solid dosage forms.
In addition to its high dilution potential, Merck’s spray-dried, directly compressible Parteck® SI demonstrates excellent compression properties compared to standard crystallised sorbitol. Thus, tabletting with Parteck® SI requires lower compression forces and reduces stress on the tabletting equipment while reliably delivering the tablet hardness you want. Using Parteck® SI, formulators can even work with active ingredients that themselves have little or no compressibility without compromising tablet quality.
