​Adjuvants : enhancing the performance of active ingredients

Agricultural adjuvants improve the efficiency of insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and other agents that control or eliminate unwanted pests and plant diseases. Our Silcolapse® foam control agents and Bluesil® surfactants enhance productivity and facilitate spreading and wetting performances on the plant. All our ingredients for crop and plant treatments are safe for people and the environment and comply with national and international regulatory standards.

Our adjuvants are used as formulation ingredients in the processing and application of agricultural chemicals that protect and enhance plant growth:

  • Silcolapse® silicone foam control agents are used for crop protection products, plant nutrients and plant growth regulators

  • Bluesil® silicone surfactants are used for crop protection and crop nutrition as super spreaders and wetting agents. They improve efficiency of actives in plants by super spreading performances.

Our experts are always available to advise you upstream and make sure that our adjuvants do exactly what's needed for your specific manufacturing or growing needs. Downstream, we also provide all the information and certifications needed to comply with regulatory constraints.
