Welcome to Imerys Performance Minerals

Compressed Tablets

Compressed Tablets Imerys minerals are ideal glidants, lubricants and diluents for compressed tablets

Calcium carbonate

Calcium carbonates are excellent diluent solutions for wet granulated products or when high whiteness is required. 

We recommend: 

  • Our Calcius™ precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) as a diluent for wet granulated products and for whiteness
  • Our Microcel® synthetic calcium silicate can permit high liquid content in tablets with minimal friability, and reduce the need for lubricating agents
  • Our Pharma talc range as flow agents and lubricants

Talc

Used as glidants / flow agents, Imerys talc:

  • Reduce fluctuations in tablet weight
  • Enhance tablet homogeneity and quality
  • Increase productivity

 

Used as lubricants for tablet presses, talc:

  • Reduce friction
  • Prevent tablets sticking to punch face during compressing
  • Facilitate die ejection

Imerys minerals are suitable for swallowable, chewable and effervescent compressed tablet production.
