Adjuvant is a sticker, spreader and activator. Adjuvant contains 80% non-ionic surfactant for increasing the penetration, coverage and overall effectiveness of almost all kinds herbicides, desiccants, defoliants, insecticides, fungicides, acaricides, and miticides.
Plant’s leaf that is waxy in nature are water repellent. When water is sprayed on a water repellent surface such as a waxy plant leaf, water tends to remain on the surface of the leaf, beading into tiny droplets.This beading means that water does not spread out evenly over the leaf’s surface. Adjuvant contains surfactants that make water , in effect, more wet. Adjuvant reduces the surface tension of water to produce more uniform coverage and penetration of herbicides and weed killers.
Adjuvant is designed to be added to a spray solution such as a tank mix.As such , Adjuvant is highly effective in causing spray droplets to spread and penetrate the surface of foliage.This provides for more uniform spray deposit on plants, improving coverage of herbicides, insecticides and fungicide sprays.
