The Science of the Perfect Capsule

Using a powder for encapsulation? Trying to balance bulk density with flow? Our capsule-grade material is ideally suited to hard-capsule filling and can help provide the highest bulk density and best flowability of material.

“A manufacturer recently asked us why they suddenly could only fill their glucosamine capsules to 80% of their weight from previous production runs when the only change was the production lot from the raw material supplier.
