Microcrystalline Cellulose

Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) is an odorless, tasteless, porous white powder derived from pharmaceutical grade wood pulp. With a wide range of chemical, technical, and economic benefits, MCC is one of the most widely used binder excipients for tablet formulations.

Benefits:

  • High compactability
  • Robust tablets with low friability
  • High production yields
  • Cost savings due to reduction in dosage levels
  • Compatibility with most APIs (inert)

Main Application

EMCOCEL® 50 M

65

0.25 – 0.37

Fine standard MCC grade, especially suited for wet granulation, roller compaction and spheronization. Very high compactibility.

EMCOCEL® 90 M

130

0.25 – 0.37

Medium size standard MCC grade, suited for the majority of directly compressible actives. Combines good flow and high compactibility.

EMCOCEL® XLM 90

130

0.25 – 0.37

Same quality to grades 102/90M, but very low moisture content (< 1.5 %) for processing water-sensitive actives.

EMCOCEL® HD 90

130

0.38 – 0.50

Same quality to grade 102/90M, but increased bulk density and improved flow properties. Especially suited for high speed tableting and processing high density actives.

EMCOCEL® 90 M COARSE

170/175

0.25 – 0.37

Coarse, DC-grade MCC.

EMCOCEL® LP 200

220

0.20 – 0.37

Coarse grade MCC, combines good compactibility and high binding capacity with outstanding flow. Provides good content uniformity at low weight variation – even when used with low concentrations of fine actives.
