Capsules are available in various sizes, from 4 (very small) up to 000 (very large). With our extensive machine park we are able to produce all these sizes. And logically, the larger the size, the more content the capsule can hold. A brief overview below.
|Content in ml||1,37||1,02||0,95||0,78||0,68||0,50||0,37||0,30||0,21|
|Powder density||Capacity capsules in mg|

By means of material choice, color and printing capsules are fully customizable tocreate your own look & feel. For example it is also possible to print a logo or band name on the capsules. Two widely used materials are gelatin and HPMC (vegetarian), but also the interest in pullulan – naturally fermented from tapioca – is increasing rapidly. And also in the field of gelatin progress has been made by offering Kosher and Halal (bovine) certified capsules.
For formulations specifically requesting delayed release or for instance an enteric release profile, DR (Delayed Release) of AR (Acid Resistant) provide an outcome. In addition to powder we can also fill capsules with granules, pellets or combinations thereof (s0-called layered capsules). Each type of product has its own specific challenges and with us you can benefit from over 20 years of experience.
In short: many possibilities. Interested in receiving a quote for your specific capsules? Please contact our sales department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
