Elkem Silicones promotes agricultural product lines at Specialty & Agro Chemicals America 2021.

Elkem Silicones will promote its range of agrochemical products at Specialty & Agro Chemicals America 2021, at the Belmont Hotel Charleston Place, booth 321, in Charleston, SC., September 8 th through 10h . 

Elkem Silicones will feature its SILCOLAPSE™ silicone foam control agents and BLUESIL™ silicone products. Our extensive product line enhances manufacturing processes and improve productivity as well as facilitate wetting and spreading performance on agricultural crops. 

Agrochemicals, which protect and enhance crops, often produce foam that hinders production, transportation and application efficiency. SILCOLAPSE™ silicone foam control agents are used for both crop protection products such as herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, as well as plant nutrients (fertilizers), plant growth regulators and home and garden products. 

BLUESIL™ silicone surfactants are used for crop protection & crop nutrition as super spreaders and wetting agents. They improve the delivery efficiency of actives into plants with super spreading performance.

"Our customers' success is our success," said Roman Radekevich, Market Manager for Elkem Silicones Specialty Fluids in Americas. "We strive to deliver silicone solutions with a personal touch.  For more information, visit booth 321 at Specialty & Agro Chemicals America 2021.
