Read more to find out how each ingredient contributes to making Firmapress an effective formula:
Microcrystalline Cellulose: Microcrystalline cellulose is an easy flowing powder that adds bulk and weight to your product. It offers strong bonding qualities while retaining high flowability, which ensures it is spread evenly throughout your mixture. As an inert substance, it won’t react with other ingredients. It’s an all-around beneficial ingredient that makes every part of the creation process easier.
Magnesium Stearate: Magnesium is the prime lubricant of the formula. It reduces friction at the point of contact between surface and the die wall during production, reducing damage to your freshly made product. It will prevent your formula from sticking to the machine and it is unaffected by process variables (for example, flow, temperature, pressure and level) which occur spontaneously. Magnesium stearate ensures that these surprises don’t affect the process. Just like microcrystalline cellulose, it has a high flow rate and is inert.
Silica Di Oxide: Silicon dioxide absorbs liquid with ease, turning liquid ingredients into free flowing powders that can be implemented into your formula. It acts as a glidant, which will improve flow qualities but still promotes quick production. This ingredient will also reduce trace quantities of moisture which can damage your machines over time.
Di-calcium Phosphate: A commonly used filler, this ingredients ensures uniform content and increases compressibility capabilities. In other words, your product can be shaped and solidified with ease.
These powders are all highly flowable and aside from Di-calcium phosphate, which shouldn’t be used with any acidic active ingredients, they are all inert. This makes your search for compatible ingredients much faster. They each provide unique benefits to your formula and ensure that your process will run smoothly. Let us take care of the technicalities and leaving you to focus on refining the rest of your formula.
We offer Firmapress in a wide range of colours : WHITE, BABY BLUE, PINK, BLUE, GREEN, ORANGE, RED, and YELLOW.
