Sodium Starch Glycolate is used as a pharmaceutical grade dissolution excipient for tablets and capsules. Sodium Starch Glycolate absorbs water rapidly, resulting in swelling which leads to rapid disintegration of tablets and granules. It is used as a disintegrant, a suspending agent and as a gelling agent. Without a disintegrant, tablets may not dissolve appropriately and may effect the amount of active ingredient absorbed, thereby decreasing effectiveness.

HYSWEL Sodium Starch Glycolate is a partially cross-linked carboxy methyl Starch (Maize or Potato)

Disintegration Mechanism HYSWEL absorbs water many times its own weight of water.

Quick water penetration and powerful swelling results in fast disintegration of solid dosage

HYSWEL has been optimized for source of starch, degree of cross-linking and degree of substitution which gives rapid water uptake without the formation of a viscous gel that may impede water penetration into the tablet
