CITROCOAT® EP – a new effervescent compound for versatile applications
Brought to you by Jungbunzlauer Inc.

Formulation of effervescent tablets can be tricky due to poor compressibility and segregation tendencies that come from different particle sizes of the components. Self-sustaining effervescent reaction is very sensitive to moisture that creates an additional challenge for product manufacturing and shelf life.
CITROCOAT® EP as an agglomerated compound has an edge over the use of separate components for tableting providing higher reactivity, better storage stability, compactibility and less granular convection. As an example, we are sharing a formulation of Multipurpose Cleaner tab where we were able to achieve the target tablet hardness with reduced compression force and improved tablet storage stability.

Key Objectives:
  • Effervescent applications and their common issues
  • Composition of CITROCOAT® EP – new effervescent compound
  • Advantages of CITROCOAT® EP in terms of reactivity, storage stability, compactibility for tablet formulations
  • Multipurpose cleaner formulation with CITROCOAT® EP and comparison to different citric acid grades
