Croscarmellose Sodium

VIVASOL®, croscarmellose sodium, is a superdisintegrant specifically developed for manufacturing tablets and capsules. Its unique performance attributes have established VIVASOL® as a globally accepted product in the pharmaceutical and nutritional industries.

The fibrous nature of VIVASOL® possesses a wicking effect, which is responsible for rapid capillary transport into the tablet matrix. As a result, the VIVASOL® use level can remain low while still providing superior tablet disintegration properties.

JRS Pharma produces two croscarmellose sodium grades: VIVASOL® and VIVASOL® GF (GMO-Free). Their specifications and functional performances are similar.

VIVASOL® offers:

  • Fast tablet disintegration
  • Good flowability and mixing properties
  • Excellent API stability
  • Performs well in both direct compression and granulation processes
  • Cost-effectiveness
  • Guaranteed supply chain security
