Making a tablet that can survive the journey from manufacturing to packaging is a complex undertaking. During this journey, tablets may turn, tumble, chip, and crack. A strong tablet going into a package will create a strong impression on consumers removing them. Ensuring a tablet’s integrity doesn’t require luck, but science.
This article focuses on tabletability, which describes the correlation between the tablet’s mechanical strength with increases in compression pressure under normal conditions. Explore why tabletability is important, the difference between tabletability and compressibility, along with how and why tablet breaking force is measured.
