LACTOSE
MONOHYDRATE

80 MESH

ARMOR PHARMA™ lactose monohydrate 80M is a coarse free flowing powder of α-lactose monohydrate with typical Tomahawk shape.

Sieving process gives coarse particles with a narrow particle size distribution enabling good flowability. This lactose is very often used in capsules and sachets formulation.

 


Key benefits :

  • • Good flowability
  • • Narrow PSD
  • • Storage stability

Applications :
