Medicinal products contain active ingredients and excipients. Although excipients are no pharmacologically active substances they are of high importance for the effect and the production process of medicinal products.

In the manufacturing process of medicinal products excipients perform various important functions. They improve processability of raw material mixtures, support the production process itself and optimise the properties of the final product as e.g. stability or breaking strength.

For pharmaceutical application, we offer Magnesia 4371, a talc (magnesium silicate) as inert excipient. Magnesia 4371 is a natural and hydrous mineral. It complies with EP, USP and E 553 b. Magnesia 4371 is of constant high quality and guaranteed free of asbestos. This is ensured and documented by batch-related laboratory controls. Furthermore, it is characterised by its very low content of heavy metals which are also tested on a batch-basis.

Talc optimises tablet production as

  • flow agent
  • lubricant
  • basis for pharmaceutical powder
  • excipient in antacids

We offer the raw material directly from our warehouse in Lüneburg and thus can assure you of short-term deliveries.
