Agricultural Silicone Spreading Wetting Agent SILIA2008
SILIA-2008 Agricultural Silicone Spreading and Wetting Agent
is a modified polyether trisiloxane and a kind of silicone surfactant with super ability of spreading and penetrating. It makes the water surface tension lower down to the 20.5mN/m at the concentration of 0.1%(wt.). After the mixture with the pesticide solution at the certain proportion, it can lower the contact angel between the spray and foliage, which can enlarge the coverage of the spray. SILIA-2008 can make the pesticide absorbed
through the stomatal of leaves, which is extremely effective for improving efficacy, reducing amount of pesticide, saving cost, reducing environmental pollution caused by pesticides
Super spreading and penetrating agent
To reduce the dosage of agrichemical spraying agent
To promote the rapid uptake of the agrichemicals (toleranc to rainfal)
Appearance： Colourless to light amber liquid
Viscosity（ 25℃， mm2/s）：25-50
Surface tension（ 25℃， 0.1%， mN/m）：<20.5
Cloud point（ 1% wt，℃）：<10℃
1. it can be used as spray adjuvant: SILIA-2008 can increase the coverage of the spraying agent, and promote the uptake and decrease the dosage of the spraying agent. The SILIA-2008 is the most effective when spray mixtures are
(i) within a PH range of 6-8,
(ii) prepare the spray mixture for immediately use or within 24h preparation.
2. it can be used in agrichemical formulations: SILIA-2008 can be added in the original pesticide.
1) Used of spray mixed in drum
In general, add SILIA-2008(4000 times) 5g in every 20kg spray. If it needs to promote the adsorption of systemic pesticide, increase the function of pesticide or reduce the amount of spray further, it should add the usage amount properly. In general, the amount is as follows:
Plant promote regulator: 0.025%～0.05%
Fertilizer and trace element: 0.015～0.1%
When using, first dissolve the pesticide, add SILIA-2008 after the uniform mixture of 80% water, then add water to 100% and mix them uniformly. It is advised that when using Agricultural Silicone Spreading and Penetrating Agent, the water amount reduced to 1/2 of the normal (suggested) or 2/3, average pesticide usage reduced to 70-80% of the normal. Using the small aperture nozzle will quicken the spray speed.
2) Used of Original Pesticide
When the product added to the original pesticide, we suggest the amount is 0.5%-8% of the original pesticide. Adjust the PH value of the pesticide prescription to 6-8. The user should adjust the amount of Agricultural Silicone Spreading and Penetrating Agent according to different kinds of pesticide and prescription to reach the most effective and most economical result. Do compatibility tests and stepwise tests before usage..
