Applications

Wet Granulation: High Shear and Fluidized Bed

NISSO HPC can be readily dissolved in both water and most organic solvents to prepare effective granulation solution. Poor flow and compaction actives can be successfully granulated using NISSO HPC to make tableting more feasible through both high shear wet granulation and fluidized bed granulation methods.

Dry Granulation: Direct Compression and Roller Compaction

NISSO HPC is highly plastic and deformable, and exhibits high cohesive and adhesive forces, all important characteristics of a robust direct compression dry binder used for solid oral dosage forms. We often recommend HPC SSL-SFP for some of the most challenging direct compression formulations because of its super fine particle size, high plasticity and enhanced compressibility, allowing formulators to create tablets of outstanding quality.

Wettability

HPC solution provides a high degree of wettability, which allows for the solution to spread evenly and efficiently across a surface, resulting in a higher level of fluid contact during processes such as wet granulation.
