Tablet Fragility Test

Friability is defined as the percentage of weight loss by tablet due to mechanical action during the test, which refers to the ability of the compressed tablet to avoid fracture and breaking during transport. Tablets are weighing before and after testing and tablets friability is expressed as a percentage loss on pre-test tablet weight. The purpose of the tablet fragility test is to determine the resistance of tablets against mechanical stress, both shaking and erosion. The higher the percentage of fragility, the greater the loss of tablet life, a good fragility value is < 1%.
