Disintegration Aids

Solutions available:

L-HPC – Two substitution types are available for rapid disintegration of a super-disintegrant nature. LS-11, LS-21, LS-22

Croscarmellose Sodium – A historical super–disintegrant.

Calcium carbonate/ Tribasic calcium phosphate Omyapharm 500 -OG. A coprocessed excipients with enhanced disintegration properties - From Omya

Flow Aids

Solutions Available:

Silicon dioxide gets Syloid® 63 FP, Syloid® 244 FP - From WR GRACE.

Pregelatinized Starch – High flowability, enhancement of dissolution, and stabilizing properties for hygroscopic drugs make this an effective granulation aid.

Silicated MCC – Provides improved flowability to the less flowable grades of MCC.
