SYLOID® mesoporous silica: Multifunctional excipients
We can fine-tune parameters such as pore volume, pore diameter, pore size distribution, and internal surface area to modify the functionality and meet your exact requirements.
Our SYLOID® FP and SYLOID® XDP silica excipients are strategic drug development tools in today’s challenging pharmaceutical industry with its demands for improved formulations, bringing new drugs to market faster, and technological advances.
SYLOID® FP silica’s unique, innovative design combines adsorption capacity, particle size, density, and internal surface area to provide multifunctional benefits or optimize an application. This helps minimize the number of excipients used and the complexity of formulations while expediting manufacturing, ultimately improving the efficacy of the final dosage form.
SYLOID® Silicas are used in a wide range of applications such as
- Moisture protection
- Reduction of (tribo-)electrostatic charging/flow improvement
- Moisture-Assisted Dry Granulation (MADG)
- Oil absorption in lipid-based technologies (SEDDS)
SYLOID® mesoporous silica excipients for solving multiple manufacturing and formulation challenges
SYLOID® AL-1FP/63FP silicas control trace amounts of moisture and moisture transfer from the surrounding environment that can chemically degrade APIs or cause reactions that negatively impact drugs or decrease shelf life.
SYLOID® G silica is specifically designed as a cost-effective glidant in pharmaceutical formulations.
SYLOID® 244 FP silica is a veritable multipurpose excipient. It offers moisture protection and anti-tacking properties, acts as a glidant, and can be used as a suspension aid in tablet coatings.
SYLOID® XDP silica carrier is an optimized mesoporous carrier engineered for transforming liquids to free-flowing solids, particularly oily actives and lipid-based systems.
