Application Note: Tablet Press Lubrication

ktron ap note
Control of the precise amount of lubricant into the process is critical to the overall product quality. If too much lubricant is added the tablet can often become softer than required. This becomes critical in the making of effervescent tablets, where excessive magnesium stearate can actually cause the tablet to repel water, thus affecting the dissolution into water.
