BREAK-THRU® S 240
BREAK-THRU® S 240 is used as an agricultural adujuvant. It is a non-ionic surfactant and belongs to the chemical class of organomodified polyether trisiloxanes.
These are the only agricultural adjuvants that can produce a phenomenon known as “super spreading“ i.e. the rapid coverage of hydrophobic surfaces such as leaves at concentrations of 0.1 % or less.
In aqueous solutions, BREAK-THRU® S 240 imparts super spreading and dramatically reduces surface tension. Therefore, the biological performance of crop protection products can be significantly enhanced by:
? superior wetting of hydrophobic surfaces, in particular leaves and other parts of plants;
? better uptake through penetration of cuticular waxes, and;
? stomatal flooding.
The outstanding physical chemical properties of BREAK-THRU® S 240 result in unique modes of action which in turn provide benefits to the farmer because
- BREAK-THRU® S 240 allows a larger amount of active ingredient to enter the plant; the active works even under difficult conditions,
- BREAK-THRU® S 240 provides rainfastness to agricultural sprays; rain an hour after application can be tolerated with no need for re-spray,
- BREAK-THRU® S 240 permits the reduction of spray volumes by up to 30 %; Saving time, money and environmental resources.
