Pharmaceutical Applications

For the pharmaceutical industry, calcium sulfate works well as a diluent and tablet binder. It is used as a filler in tablets made by direct compression or for use as a binder in wet granulation.

Calcium sulfate is an inorganic material that is mainly used in wet granulations to improve the binding properties, especially in classic granulations that use starch or cellulose as a base. It has high calcium content and can be used in dietary supplements as a source of calcium.

It is readily soluble in acidic environments, which makes it ideal for compounding oral medications. It also provides soluble calcium ions for the added benefit of dietary calcium.
