Effect of die taper and precompression on air entrapment during tablet compression

Remove from favorites

During tablet compression, the presence of trapped air can significantly compromise both the visual appeal and mechanical characteristics of the tablet. Factors such as low-clearance tooling, elevated powder plasticity, and the absence of a deaeration step can worsen problems associated with air entrapment. To address issues related to air entrapment and reduce lamination defects, common practices include employing a tapered die and implementing a precompression step. It is essential to conduct a comparative analysis between die tapering and precompression to evaluate their effectiveness in mitigating air entrapment problems, especially in formulations with high plasticity that are prone to such issues.
