A computer-aided hardness tester (Chinoin Pharmaceutical Works, Budapest) was used to study the post-compressional breaking of Vivacel® 101 and 102 comprimates. The software permitted a qualitative evaluation of the breaking curves, and yielded the breaking work and the work necessary for deformation processes. The concept of the breaking factor was introduced; this can reveal differences between tablets even if they exhibit identical hardness.
