CALCI-PRESS™ 90 S

Calcium carbonate for direct compression

CALCI-PRESS™ 90 S is a calcium carbonate offering an excellent aptitude for direct compression and very good flowing properties.
CALCI-PRESS™ 90 S is the perfect ingredient for the formulation of dietary supplements in the form of tablets or capsules. It can be used as a source of calcium, a compression excipient and a filler.

Characteristics

CALCI-PRESS™ 90 S is a calcium carbonate, co-granulated with pregelatinized corn starch. It is a granulated powder extremely consistent in particle size and range from batch to batch.

CALCI-PRESS™ 90 S has unique properties making it particularly attractive for the formulation of tablets and capsules:

  • Source of calcium:

CALCI-PRESS™ 90 S contains 90% calcium carbonate, which equals to 36.45g of Ca per 100g of CALCI-PRESS™ 90 S.

  • Excellent compressibility and rapid disintegration:

CALCI-PRESS™ 90 S can be used in the manufacture of tablets by direct compression, providing excellent hardness to tablets without impacting disintegration or dissolution times.

  • High density and good flow:

CALCI-PRESS™ 90 S is suitable for high dose and high speed tableting, ensuring a fluid process.

  • Less abrasive particles:

Due to its low abrasive particles, use of CALCI-PRESS™ 90 S helps reduce wear on compression equipment and extend tooling life.

  • Optimized production costs:

CALCI-PRESS™ 90 S helps reduce processing costs and time by avoiding an additional granulation step.
