Products from Peter Greven Nederland C.V.

  • LIGAMED MF-2-V

    Product LIGAMED MF-2-V

    LIGAMED MF-2-V is our most widely used excipient for the production of tablets and capsules. Its high specific surface area and fine particles offer a high releasing speed during tablet pressing and consistent physical performance of the tablets such as hardness and dissolution profiles. Due to the exceptional high specific surface area, typical quantity used during formulation is low: 0,2 % to 1 % by tablet weight. In addition to the application as a tableting agent, this product is also used as a flowability agent for powder preblends, offering an efficient and low dosage in capsules.
  • LIGAMED CPR-2-V

    Product LIGAMED CPR-2-V

    Some pharmaceutical formulations include vegetable based Calcium Stearate instead of Magnesium Stearate. Our LIGAMED CPR-2-V is a perfect choice encompassing all core LIGAMED® pharmaceutical excipient principles. LIGAMED CPR-2-V is also used as a water repellent agent in the production of effervescent tablets. Premature reaction of the effervescent tablet is avoided by preventing unwanted absorption of moisture.
