Silwet* Surfactants

ENHANCING PRODUCT DELIVERY AND EFFICACY

To improve their product’s performance, formulators and chemists utilizing the versatile Silwet portfolio may select from the large array of desirable physical properties that these surfactants provide. In addition to their ability to enhance wetting and spreading, Silwet surfactants can also improve sheeting, anti-fogging, emulsifying, release, and foaming or defoaming.

From a foundation of three main chemical components, each of which imparts certain key physical properties, each Silwet surfactant is composed to provide a particular set of features that can be selected to improve the performance of specific formulations. Silwet surfactants can offer:

  • Low surface tension
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Low interfacial tension
  • Low glass transition temperature
  • Good thermal stability
  • High UV resistance

These features, in turn, can improve efficacy so that less end product is needed to produce desired effects. Silwet surfactants may also act synergistically with other surfactants to improve their performance, thus allowing for optimized customization. As customers get more mileage, value and profitability out of the chemicals already in their formulations, cost and performance may be optimized, providing the kind of benefit enhancement that turns ordinary products into differentiated best sellers.

For example, Silwet super-spreading spray adjuvants have been helping growers all over the world achieve greater agricultural productivity. Silwet adjuvants help promote low surface tension, rapid wetting, better adhesion and coverage on foliar surfaces, which can result in enhanced performance and consistency of spray applications. They have demonstrated the potential to lower spray volumes up to 75%, and thus lower both application time and costs. 

Our Silwet family of surfactants is one of the most complete in the industry. 

Explore the Silwet performance additives product family to discover the right solution for many industrial, agriculture, food production and textile applications.
