Coated tablets Excellent anti-tack agents for flawless coated tablets every time

Imerys talcs make cost-effective tablet coating additives improving the quality of the finished product.

Imerys talcs:

  • eliminate tackiness during drying
  • prevent agglomerations in the coater
  • reduce coating time
  • produce flawless coated products.

Imerys talcs are innocuous making them ideal for use in enteric coatings for targeted delivery of drugs.

We particularly recommend our Luzenac Pharma M grade for coated tablets.


All Imerys talc grades for pharmaceuticals are decontaminated in compliance with European (EP), US (USP) and Japanese (JP) Pharmacopoeias, allowing their utilization worldwide.

They are produced on dedicated decontaminated process lines which are certified under the 'Joint IPEC – PQG Good Manufacturing Practices Guide for Pharmaceutical Excipients'.

We offer a full range of bespoke formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
