Friability is the tendency for a tablet to chip, crumble or break following compression and can occur due
to shock or abrasion during subsequent manufacturing steps, packaging or shipping. Normally limited to
uncoated tablets and surfaces, it is a tendency that can significantly erode tablet quality.
The FRVi series and Friabimat testers from Copley provide highly reproducible, cost-efficient friability
testing for all tablet types, allow the characterisation of the critical tendency of tablets to chip,
crumble or break.
