anti-gas tablets using simethicone

Simethicone

NuSil® simethicone fluids and granular solids are used in a broad range of healthcare and pharmaceutical applications for their anti-gas and anti-foaming properties.

For a broad range of antacid and anti-gas treatments, the NuSil simethicone portfolio offers products designed for efficient use in both aqueous and non-aqueous solutions. NuSil simethicone is supplied in both liquid and granular solid options:

  • Simethicone fluids: Our formulations provide versatility in pharmaceutical applications with properties such as varying polymer viscosities, low volatility and resistance to silica separation. Made with superior bubble-coalescing activity, they are highly effective for the elimination and control of foam in both aqueous and non-aqueous solutions.
  • Simethicone granular solid: The fastest granular simethicone defoamer on the market, it has a proven history of use in chewable and soft-chew antacid tablets. It allows for easy blending with other tablet ingredients and is designed to reduce the cost of cleanup and additional equipment required for liquid addition of simethicone-active ingredients.
