SYLOID® 63 FP
SYLOID® 63 FP is a synthetic, amorphous silica appearing as a white, free-flowing powder. It meets the test requirements for silicon dioxide as described in the latest edition of United States Pharmacopoeia/National Formulary (USP/NF) and for hydrated silicon dioxide as described in the latest edition of Japanese Pharmaceutical Excipients. SYLOID® 63FP also meets the test requirements in the latest edition of the Food Chemicals Codex (FCC).
SYLOID® 63 FP is a low pore volume gel with a very large internal surface area. It has a strong affinity for moisture even at very low humidity levels. It is particularly recommended as a free flow and tabletting additive for pharmaceutical products where humidity must be kept to a minimum.
