Disintegration excipients: Formulation potential – released

Disintegrants and superdisintegrants are used in pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and OTC dosage forms to ensure a rapid break down into their primary particles. This allows for the effective dissolution or release of the active ingredients for enhanced patient and consumer experience. 

Our disintegrant and superdisintegrant solutions

Sodium starch glycolate superdisintegrants

Suitable for all oral dosage forms and manufacturing processes – from direct compression to wet granulation – the main advantage of sodium starch glycolate is its versatility. This ingredient can also help enhance efficiency through different modes of incorporation and its ability to be used in conjunction with lubricants, with no effect on dissolution performance.

At Roquette, we offer two leading ranges of sodium starch glycolate, both featuring an array of grades designed to meet specific formulation requirements:


Derived from potato or maize starch, this range includes grades suitable for wet granulation and high-shear granulation processes, as well as pH sensitive active ingredients.


Derived from potato or corn starch, our EXPLOSOL® line is designed for use with low residual solvents.

Croscarmellose sodium superdisintegrants

With its high capacity for water absorption and complete distinegration, croscarmellose sodium is a highly effective superdisintegrant that can also serve as a dissolution aid. It is widely used in solid oral dosage forms thanks to its effectivness at low volumes and ability to regenerate after being moistened.

Roquette offers a complete portfolio of croscarmellose varieties under our SOLUTAB®  range: a versatile collection of solutions ideal for use in tablets, capsules, and pellets – produced via direct compression or dry and wet granulation.
