Product Information

Tablettose® 70

The product Tablettose® is manufactured by a continous spray agglomeration process, where water is used as the binder and is sprayed onto fluidized fine milled lactose particles, creating liquid bridges to form agglomerated lactose.

Tablettose®, especially designed for Direct-Compression, combines the flowability of coarse lactose crystals and the good compressibility of fine milled lactose.

Tablettose® 70 is manufactured using identical starting material as Tablettose® 80; however, the particle size distribution is narrower. The content of fines smaller than 63 µm is reduced significantly and there are no particles larger than 500 µm, making Tablettose® 70 the excipient of choice for narrow particle size distribution and dust free production.
