Parchem supplies Binders and Tableting Aids

Jul 01, 2013

Parchem – fine & specialty chemicals is the premier supplier for Croscarmellose Sodium (Sodium CMC) and Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC).  Both Sodium CMC and MCC have a wide range of applications in pharmaceuticals and industrial manufacturing processes.  It is often used as a binder in tableting and as a thickener in plastics and paints.

MCC in particular is often used as a bulking agent and tableting aid in pharmaceutical production processes. It is a highly absorptive material and expands in size when introduced to liquid environments.  MCC has been used in pharmaceutical products such as chewable and dissolving tablets, capsules, topical preparations, suspensions, and liquid preparations.

Much like Microcrystalline Cellulose, Croscarmellose Sodium has a wide range of uses but is particularly common in pharmaceutical formulations as a filler and binding agent. Croscarmellose is a cross-linked polymer of Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose.  Because of its cross-linked molecular structure, Sodium CMC is both insoluble and extremely absorbent when introduced to water. Sodium CMC is often used in the production of adhesives because of its strong water-absorbing properties and its flexible cross-linked structure.

Parchem is a leading supplier of many types of binders and tableting aids used in pharmaceuticals and adhesive production.  We offer several grades and specifications for both Microcrystalline Cellulose and Croscarmellose Sodium.
