SiSiB® ASS8309 is a low viscosity nonionic silicone polyether surfactant. It is developed to improve the spreading, wetting and penetration of agricultural chemicals, especially water-soluble broadleaf herbicides and insecticides, fungicides and plant growth regulators.
SiSiB® ASS8309 for silicon use in agriculture can make the pesticide absorbed through the stomata of leaves, which is extremely effective for improving efficacy, reducing amount of pesticide, saving cost, reducing environmental pollution caused by pesticides.

SiSiB® ASS8309 trisiloxane alkoxylate could be used as a tank-mix adjuvant for foliar-applied chemicals, or as a formulation ingredient in pesticide products.
As an Agricultural Chemical Tank-Mix Adjuvant
SiSiB® ASS8309 silicone adjuvant may be added to tank-mixes to enhance the biological performance of the spray solution. With herbicides, SiSiB® ASS8309 should be added 50g into 200kg spray solution(4000-times diluent), generally.

In Agricultural Chemical Formulations
SiSiB® ASS8309 provided by SiSiB, a professional food grade silicone manufacturer, may be used as an ingredient of 0.5-8% in formulations, provided all the ingredients are compatible. It is stable in neutral aqueous formulations (pH=7), but will degrade rapidly in acidic or alkaline formulations. New product formulations should be thoroughly tested for performance and shelf stability before taking to market.
SiSiB® ASS8309 is supplied in 200Kg drum or 1000Kg IBC tote.
In the unopened original container SiSiB® ASS8309 has a shelf life of three years in a dry and cool place.
