Heat sensitive products like Ibuprofen powder are difficult to compact and tend to stick to punch surfaces during tableting process. Furthermore, they can have a poor flowability and often cannot be fed into die. As a result, there are high variants in tablet weight due to the inhomogeneous die filling.
Powder is temperature sensitive and starts sticking after 35°C
