Cellulose Derivatives

Our Cellulose Derivatives are top of the class with excellent product characteristics for a broad range of applications.

Our MCC and sMCC combines low black spot level with excellent flow and compaction properties during processing.

The perfect match for solid and semi-fluid dosage forms. 

All our MCC types are spray dried only with significant cost savings and process advantages in all applications.

USE CASE: Spray Dried MCC Vs Bulk Dried MCC in the Tabletting Process
