COMPRECEL® Microcrystalline Cellulose is a partially depolymerized cellulose prepared by acid hydrolysis of purified wood pulp, nature's most abundant polymer.
COMPRECEL® products are widely used as key ingredient in pharmaceutical and nutraceutical supplement application, primarily as binder/diluent/disintegration in tablet and capsule formulations in both wet granulation and direct compression processes.
In drugs: That COMPRECEL® microcrystalline cellulose focus on opportunities for drugs as functions mentioned above is primarily tablets including direct compression and wet ranulation. It is also used to prepare granules, beadlets or minor involvement in capsules, suppositories etc.
In foods: COMPRECEL® microcrystalline cellulose can apply widely in food industries on account of its excel lent properties. For the purpose of anticaking, it has become popular. Likewise, by using of ingredient as absorbent, shredded cheese can readily separate form as well as appropriate customer's use.
In industry: Scienceiftic technology always delivers innovative products. Applications of bottom, painter, and even telephone tablet or treatment aid for ceramics catalyst for natural gas make COMPRECEL® microcrystalline cellulose an optimum effects of result.
