SPECIALITY INGREDIENTS

FUJI SILYSIA CHEMICAL LTD.

SYLYSIA FCP is a high purity and porous amorphous silica-gel presentation used in the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, food, personal care and cosmetic industries. The amorphous structure of the silica-gel is safely handled and non-carcinogenic. The high purity of the SYLYSIA FCP, no less than 99.7% silicon dioxide, is chemically inert, odorless and tasteless. It has been deemed safe by the Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare and is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) under the U.S. FDA regulations for direct and indirect contact.

Applications:

  • Powderizing Liquids
  • Free-flow agent
  • Improving hardness of tablet

Advantages of SYLYSIA

  • As bulk density of SYLYSIA is lower than that of Fumed Silica, the powder dust of SYLYSIA is comparatively lower. The bigger porosity is also effective for time release & viscosity control.
  • SYLYSIA can hold more liquid medicine due to the porous structure/nature.
  • SYLYSIA shows good performance for free flow improvement even for small dosage.
  • SYLYSIA improves homogeneity in process of tablet and tablet hardness can be increased.
  • It is possible for time release control in medicinal ingredient by using porous structure and difference of pore diameter (between SY350FCP and SY770FCP), and performs in DDS dissolution.
  • It is possible to stabilize of crystallization because crystallized medicine inside of particle does not change the structure even if time goes by. This is due to the porosity reason in Sol-Gel typed silica whereas fumed type does not have.
