Specifications

Emcocel Microcrystalline Cellulose

A very good binder with the advantage of also being a good dissolution agent after ingestion (excipient) - often combined with lactose to get the binding advantages of both and the excipient advantage of microcrystalline cellulose:

Specifications

Di-Pac Sucrose Binder

Specially processed sucrose with dextrins. The industry standard for making chewable or sublingual tablets. Use with stearic acid and magnesium stearate if you are making chewables or sublinguals . If your active ingredient is difficult to tablet and you need more than 20% of it in each tablet, you may need to add 10% to 20% of either lactose or microcrystalline cellulose (do NOT use Pro-Solv for chewables). For extra sweetness in the tablet, you may wish to include dextrose, stevia, or another sweetener in the tablet as well.

Lubricants

NON-RETURNABLE

Stearic Acid Powder, NF, VEGETABLE BASED

(Also known as vegetable stearin) - The industry standard, along with magnesium stearate, for keeping the punches and dies lubricated so tableting proceeds smoothly (stearic acid and magnesium stearate are used together, usually in a 2:1 ratio) - (1 kg of stearic acid will allow you to make up about 250,000 tablets, if the tablets are 400 mg total weight and the percentage of stearic acid used per tablet is 1% (4 mg)):
