Grades & Availability
|Dry binder for direct compression and orally dissolvable tablets (ODT)
||CELNY-SSL Super Fine
||Highly compressible super fine powder, adds superior tablet hardness without extending disintegration time due to super low viscosity and low usage levels. Try this in your most difficult formulations.
|Wet binder for granulation
||CELNY-L, SL, SSL
||Imparts excellent tablet hardness and friability. Lower viscosity grades give faster disintegration times for your tablets, are easier to handle and can speed up granulation time by allowing higher concentration of binder solution.
|Sustained release tablets
||CELNY-L and L-Fine, CELNY-M and M-Fine
||Matrix tablet former for slow release of active and slow erosion of tablet at high usage levels.
||Improves plasticity and adherence of coatings, prevents logo bridging
||Stabilizes peaks of commercial whipped cream
