ST. CHARLES, MO., U.S. (July 26, 2017) — Natoli Engineering Company, Inc. announces an addition to their Tablet Compression Accessories Catalog—PolyPlus ® and PolyPlus Prime ® plastic media for use with automated polishing systems.
Natoli strives to offer solutions to customer problems in every area of the tablet compression process. If you are using drag finishing (automated polishing), plastic media offers an alternative to traditional walnut shell based media.
"We're seeing a lot more interest in the plastic media, especially from pharmaceutical companies," says Cory Terry, Natoli's Parts and Accessories Catalog Manager. "With rising concerns over allergens, plastic media is the ideal solution for an alternative to traditional walnut shell media." Additionally, when compared to walnut shell media, plastic media creates minimal dust during the polishing process, can be used many times over, and can even eliminate the need for a vacuum system.
Both varieties of plastic media— PolyPlus ® (Type II) and PolyPlus Prime ® —are sized 40/60 mil spec and come in 50lb (22.68 kg) boxes. The plastic has been thoroughly tested for quality assurance, and Natoli offers Material Safety Data Sheets on both. The PolyPlus Prime ® media is made from 100% “virgin” urea resin, and does not contain the residue-causing calcium carbonate typically found in other plastics, making it ideal for pharmaceutical use.
