Products Binders MCC SANAQ®


Microcrystalline Cellulose (Ph. Eur. / USP-NF)

Microcrystalline Cellulose MCC SANAQ® is a purified and partially depolymerized a-cellulose. High standards in the selection of the raw material and the ingredients for the production of MCC SANAQ® and strict observation of the manufacturing (GMP) guarantee a steady quality.

MCC SANAQ® is mainly used as filling, binding and blasting material for tableting (direct tableting), as well as for dry and wet granulation and as filling material for hard gelatine capsules.

MCC SANAQ® UL-002 as a new highly compactible binder is used where low compression force is required, with low compressible API’s or to reduce the excipient in a formulation.

MCC SANAQ® fine grade types have an enormous swelling powder to be used as stabilizers for suspensions.

MCC SANAQ® is used as filter material in separation technology.

MCC SANAQ® is suitable for cosmetics, as stabilizer for emulsions, as absorption and turbidity material and as viscosity regulator.

MCC SANAQ® in food industry stabilizing system for both water and oil phase ingredients.

MCC SANAQ® is pure microcrystalline cellulose, which chemical and physical identities meed the latest standards of Ph. Eur., USP-NF.

More information on the characteristics of the MCC SANAQ® types.


MCC SANAQ® has excellent compressibility. The outstanding plasticity enables to produce tablets with high temper and ultimate strength. At the same time the tablets have very short disintegration times. It’s good flowing properties guarantee high production rates. High microbial purity, colour stability and excellent absorption properties of MCC SANAQ® lead to success in all tableting processes.

MCC SANAQ® is a nonreactive substance with homogenous particle sizes. This makes it ideal as filter material in separation technology to guarantee results of high quality.
