A caplet (“capsule-shaped tablet”) is a smooth, coated, oval-shaped medicinal tablet in the general shape of a capsule. Many caplets have an indentation running down the middle so they may be split in half easier.
In the tablet-pressing process, it is important that all ingredients be fairly dry, powdered or granular, somewhat uniform in particle size, and freely flowing. Our extensive granulation processes are designed to ensure content uniformity of drug or active pharmaceutical ingredients and prevent segregation of mixed particle sized powders.
Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients may be tableted as pure substances, or excipients (binders) and/or disintegrants can be added to formulations to aid in tablet binding and dispersion once swallowed.
