The primary function of lubricants in tableting is to reduce the force required to eject the compressed tablet from the die cavity. In capsule filling, where a plug is formed, lubricants perform essentially the same function by reducing the force required to transfer the plug from the dosator into the capsule. Without lubricants, these processes would be difficult or impossible and would result in significantly shorter tooling lifespan. Lubricants also strongly influence tablet hardness, disintegration time, and dissolution.
JRS Pharma offers both a conventional liquid film-lubricant and a high-quality multifunctional boundary lubricant. The liquid film-lubricant can also be used as a sustained-release matrix.
