TALC IN PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY
Talc finds important application in the pharmaceutical industry in tablet manufacture. It imparts crucial properties to the tablets, thereby making it suitable and functional.
- Talc is slippery in nature and therefore allows the tablet to glide smoothly down the throat.
- The lamellar structure of talc allows for significant compression of tablet.
- Talc provides disintegration properties that enable the tablet to disintegrate once in the body.
- Importantly, talc is non-allergenic and non-irritant and is thus perfectly suited for bodily consumption.
The pharmaceutical industry requires extremely high quality talc containing minimum impurities. The iron content must be less than 0.1%. Natural material of such purity is generally not found and pharmaceutical talc is prepared by passing the high purity powdered talc over a magnetic separator to reduce the iron content.
There are few players in India who can maintain the required purity and quality of Talc which will be acceptable in pharmaceutical use.
