Tablettose® 80

Tablettose® 80

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.
MEGGLEs Tablettose® 80 was the first available agglomerated alpha-lactose monohydrate of its kind. Its agglomerates possess a size ranging from 0 – 630 µm.
