MAGNESIUM STEARATE

Magnesium Stearate

Our Magnesium Stearate is a very fine, high purity, low ash, non caking product which is specially customised to meet the requirements of Pharmaceutical industry. It is most widely used as a lubricating agent in tablet manufacturing.

  • Magnesium Stearate is primarily used as a lubricant in capsule and tablet manufacturing
  • Magnesium stearate is used as an anti-caking agent in applications in which a free flowing final product is desired, such as aerosols and cosmetic powders
  • Magnesium stearate is also used as anti caking agent in Food industry
  • Thermostable Magnesium Stearate is used as lubricant and release agent in the processing of thermoplastics and thermosets
  • Magnesium stearate is also used as a lubricant in ABS injection moulding compounds
  • Magnesium stearate can also be used as a dusting agent to prevent surface tackiness in rubber products, and as a flattening agent for paints, varnishes and lacquers
  • Magnesium stearate is suitable for use in food packaging applications in accordance with many FDA Code of Regulations

Advantages And Features :

  • Magnesium Stearate helps achieve proper hopper flow during tablet manufacturing
  • Tablet ejection force required is minimal
  • Magnesium stearate improves life of dies and punches as their wear and tear is reduced
  • Magnesium stearate increases the production speed by ensuring proper flow ability
  • We only use premium quality vegetable based raw materials for our production.
  • We closely monitor critical physical parameters like Specific surface area, Bulk density and Particle size distribution
