Improving the efficiency of agrochemical application

Silicone Antifoams for Crop Care

Agricultural scientists and agrochemical manufacturers are constantly innovating to produce better and safer agrochemicals to meet the challenge to feed the world’s growing population.

Foams – a two-phase medium in which a gas is dispersed throughout a continuous fluid phase – stand in the way of this goal, because they make targeted application more difficult, wasting water and reducing efficiency. Foam formation can lead to process and equipment failure, or even safety and environmental hazards – and that’s where silicones are vital.

You can rely on our SILCOLAPSE™ and BLUESIL™ ranges

Our SILCOLAPSE™ and BLUESIL™ silicones prevent, reduce or eliminate foam during the formulation and application of crop protection/nutrition products, and are used in a wide range of applications. All of our products comply with international regulatory standards for people and environment, with SILCOLAPSE™ products being highly safe and environmentally compatible.

SILCOLAPSE™ foam control agents are used for crop protection and defense products such as herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, plant nutrients and plant growth regulators, home & garden pest control products, and crop nutrition (specialty fertilizers). They also optimize production and processing, for example as tank mix adjuvants, spreading aids, wetting agents, and active-ingredient enhancers.

Our staff are here to provide you with the best product, process and application guidance on silicone use in agricultural applications – from dedicated product development to on-site technical services.
