When Is Specialty Tableting Right for Chemical Products?
Specialty tableting is the complex method of manufacturing tablets made from a formulation that consist of multiple chemical components, such as active ingredients, binders or other fillers. Often times the blending and mixing portion of the process is a crucial step in ensuring the final product meets performance specifications. For example, in order to ensure final product consistency, two or more ingredients may need to be blended together in-line, and then co-granulated prior to tableting. If not done in-line, then the tablet may not have a good uniform distribution of each chemical component, and could result in inconsistent performance properties. Essentially, specialty tableting is critical any time a product is made from two or more components, and therefore needs to be carefully balanced.
