How is Magnesium Stearate used in tabletting?

Magnesium stearate is often used as an anti-adherent in the manufacture of medical tablets, capsules, and powders. The substance is also useful because it has lubricating properties, preventing ingredients from sticking to manufacturing equipment during the production and compression of chemical powders into solid tablets. It is highly effective at reducing ‘capping’ during the tableting process.
