The AkzoNobel Agro Applications Business offers a product line divided into four technology platforms:
Wetter, spreader, penetrant, compatibility agent, etc.
Dispersant, wetting agent, stabilizer, emulsifier, etc.
Solvent, co-solvent, solubilizer, etc.
Stabilizer, rheology modifier, crystal inhibitor, etc.
What benefits AkzoNobel's surface chemistry brings to agro chemicals:
Solubility of active in the formulation;
surface tension, emulsification/dispersion (surfactants)
Prevention of active recrystallization;
emulsification/dispersion stability (polymers)
Retention and spreading on a leaf;
surface tension, rheology, drop size (surfactants and polymers)
Stability of formulations to salt and range of temperatures;
type of surfactants used
Drift control surface tension;
droplet size and rheology (surfactants and polymers)
All will improve the performance of the active ingredient in a different way and all are based on tuning the surface chemistry!
Why use surfactants? Ask us! We are the experts in Surface Chemistry.
- Interfacial tension
- Surface modification
