ZEOPHARM® 250 synthetic amorphous calcium silicate NF has a medium particle size (15 microns) and is highly absorptive. With a pH-value of 10, the product can serve multiple purposes in tabletting. ZEOPHARM® 250 calcium silicate NF can be used as a glidant to allow uniform flow into the tablet press which results in less tab-let weight variation. When used as a tablet coating, ZEOPHARM® 250 calcium silicate NF provides a buffering effect reducing tablet dissolution in the stomach. ZEOPHARM® 250 calcium silicate NF also minimizes moisture absorption by the tablets.
Scope of Application
As as a glidant- Provides more even flow into the tablet press- Reduces tablet weight variation
As a tablet coating- Higher pH acts as a buffer for stomach acid- High absorptive capacity protects tablets from moisture uptake
As a carrier- Turning liquids into dry, flowable powders
