SmartEx® is a co-processed material which consists of Mannitol as a filler, L-HPC as a disintegrant and PVA(polyvinyl alcohol) as a binder.
SmartEx® can be used in direct compression process as it has excellent compressibility, disintegration property and flowability.
Especially SmartEx® is recommendable for a filler of ODTs(Orally disintegrating tablets).
Benefits of SmartEx®
High compressibility / Applicable for low compressible APIs
Fast disintegration / Disintegrate in less than 30 seconds
Good mouth feeling / Smooth mouth feel and good taste
Good flowability / Possible to produce low deviation tablets
Excellent stability / No change in hardness under high humidity condition
