Brenntag Canada and Fuji Chemical Industries Announce Exclusive Distribution Agreement

Effective April 1, 2020, Brenntag Canada is the exclusive distributor of Fuji Chemical’s premium line of excipients in Canada.

Fuji’s premium line of excipients is produced using their spray drying capabilities and includes Neusilin®, Fujicalin®, F-MELT®, and FujiSil™.

  • Neusilin® - is Magnesium Aluminometasilicate USP/EP/JP.
    It improves powder flowability, is an excellent adsorbent for
    oily actives, is an anticaking agent, and acts as a stabilizer
    for deliquescent drugs
  • Fujicalin® - is a unique form of Dibasic calcium phosphate
    anhydrous (DCPA). It provides flowability, rapid disintegration,
    high direct compressibility, high oil adsorption capability, is
    non-abrasive, and can improve survivability of
    probiotics during tableting
  • F-MELT® - ready-to-use excipient base for ODTs. It provides
    an easy way to produce fast melt tablets on conventional
    tableting equipment that disintegrate within 30 seconds. It is
    directly compressible, extremely flowable, and produces
    tablets with excellent mouth feel
  • FujiSil™ - is a unique form of Silicon Dioxide USP/NF. It is a versatile excipient that has superior adsorption properties and can turn oily actives into a free-flowing powder, improve tabletability, be used as a carrier for solid dispersions, and aids in moisture protection
