Agriculture Surfacants

From a foundation of three main chemical components, each of which imparts certain key physical properties, each Agriculture surfactant is composed to provide a particular set of features that can be selected to improve the performance of specific formulations. 

Agriculture surfactants can offer:

  • Low surface tension
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Low inter facial tension
  • Low glass transition

Description
Silwet 408 spray adjuvant is a superspreading surfactant based on a trisiloxane ethoxylate. Silwet 408 spray adjuvant lowers the surface tension of spray solutions, beyond that which is achievable with conventional adjuvants.Typically, Silwet 408 spray adjuvant (@ 0.1 wt %) gives an aqueous surface tension of <22 mN/m. On the other hand, an octylphenol ethoxylate containing 10 EO units (a commonly used nonionic surfactant) at 1.0 wt % gives a surface tension of only 30 mN/m.The bottom line Silwet 408 spray adjuvant helps lower the aqueous surface tension more effectively than conven tional spray adjuvants.Additionally, under specific conditions, Silwet 408 spray adjuvant promotes rapid uptake of agrochemicals into plants via stomatal infiltration. Spray solutions taken into plants in this way become rainfast, thereby improving application reliability.Unlike other trisiloxane alkoxylates, which are negatively affected by oil based components (i.e. EC formulations, spray oils, etc.), Silwet 408 spray adjuvant provides enhanced spreading in many of these types of formulations relative to competitive organosilicone based adjuvants.Silwet 408 spray adjuvant is nonionic in nature, making it useful with a broad range of agrochemical formulations.
Key Features and Benefits
  • Superspreader for soluble liquid and emulsifiable concentrate formulations
  • Promotes spray volume reduction
  • Promotes rapid uptake of agrochemicals (rainfastness)
  • Improves spray coverage
  • Nonionic
  • Meets requirements of EPA 40CFR§180.910
Potential ApplicationsSilwet 408 spray adjuvant has been used successfully in spray applications globally. Typical applications include
Application Typical Use Rate(a)
Plant Growth Regulators 0.025% to 0.05%
Herbicide 0.025% to 0.15%
Insecticide 0.025% to 0.1%
Fungicide 0.015% to 0.05%
Fertilizers and Micronutrients 0.015% to 0.1%
(a) Note use rates are dependent on crop, agrochemical and spray volume requirements.

  • Silwet L-77 spray adjuvant is a superspreading surfactant based on a trisiloxane ethoxylate. Silwet L-77 spray adjuvant lowers the surface tension of spray solutions, beyond that which is achievable with conventional adjuvants.
  • Typically, Silwet L-77 spray adjuvant (@0.1 wt%) gives an aqueous surface tension of 20.5mN/m. On the other hand, an octyl phenol ethoxylate containing 10 EO units (a commonly used nonionic surfactant) at 1.0 wt % gives a surface tension of only 30mN/m.
  • The bottom line? Silwet L-77 spray adjuvant helps lower the aqueous surface tension more effectively than conventional spray adjuvants.
  • Because Silwet L-77 spray adjuvant is a superspreading surfactant, the contact angle of spray solutions on leaf surfaces is reduced, leading to an increase in spray coverage.
