Wet Granulation


Starch 1500® Partially Pregelatinized Maize Starch is used as a binder and/or a disintegrant in wet granulated formulations. It is well suited for use in fluid bed granulation, in addition to low shear and high shear wet granulation. Starch 1500 can reduce process time and cost while preserving optimal properties in a well designed formulation. As a binder and disintegrant in wet granulation Starch 1500 offers process flexiblity due to the low solution viscosity, binding and disintegration properties.


Dry Addition

  • The cold water soluble fraction of Starch 1500 provides unique benefits for the granulation process. The main advantage is that it can be dry blended with other ingredients and granulation can be accomplished by the addition of water.
