More About Silwet* 408 Super Spreader

Under specific conditions, Silwet 408 spray adjuvant helps accelerate the rapid uptake of agrochemicals into plants and foliage through stomatal infiltration, resulting in rainfast spray solutions and improved application reliability. Unlike many other trisiloxane alkoxylates, Silwet 408 spray adjuvant is not typically affected by oil-based components and can provide enhanced spreading in formulations containing such components, especially when compared to most other organosilicone-based adjuvants. Being nonionic in nature, Silwet 408 spray adjuvant may be considered for use across a broad range of agrochemical applications.    

Potential applications for Silwet 408 spray adjuvant include: 

  • Plant growth regulators
  • Herbicide
  • Insecticide
  • Fungicide
  • Fertilizers and micronutrients
