Bi-Layer Shear Jig

August 10, 2012

The TA-BLS bi-layer shear jig for the CT3 texture tester is a guillotine type device used to measure the force needed to separate the layers of a multi-layer tablet. A tablet is placed in the jig and the cutting plate slices into the tablet until the adhesion fails, thus measuring the force that will detach a multi-layered tablet. The TA-BLS is a valuable tool for manufacturers who need to test the adhesion and composition of bi-layered tablets with time-released formulas.
