Ludiflash® is a combined filler, binder and disintegrant, designed to dissolve in the mouth within seconds.

Ludiflash® comprises the following ingredients: 90 percent Mannitol, a fast-dissolving filler with a mildly sweet taste; 5 percent Kollidon® CL-SF (crospovidone), a superior tablet disintegrant that is effective even with very little liquid; and 5 percent Kollicoat® SR 30 D (polyvinyl acetate), a hydrophobic binder. Each component complies with all leading pharmacopoeia monographs. Plus, the fast-disintegrating, fast-acting formulations created with Ludiflash® offer an exceptionally smooth and creamy mouthfeel – enhancing patient compliance.

Ludiflash® delivers tangible benefits to manufacturers, exhibiting good flowability, compressibility and stability. The compound’s low hygroscopicity ensures the stability of the active ingredient and of the tablet itself.

Ludiflash® is suitable for direct compression and roller compaction, and can be deployed in wet-granulation processes. Blends can be processed on standard tableting machines or used in the form of granulate or powder. When a standard tableting process is used, Ludiflash® ensures excellent uniformity, even at high speeds: creating compact and highly porous tablets that offer exceptional hardness and low friability, making them suitable for polyethylene containers and push-through blisters.
