SiSiB® ASS8560 is an alkyl modified trisiloxane that may provide spreading properties to agricultural oils. It can improve the coverage of oils on foliar surfaces and increases the efficient of oil based pesticide formulations.
SiSiB® ASS8560 is insoluble in water, glycerin, propylene glycol, butylene glycol, but the alkyl modification makes this product compatible with most organic oils, such as vegetable oils, mineral oil silicone liquid, Ethanol, isopropanol, soybean oil, methylsoyate, fatty alcohols/acids, esters, glycerides, hydrocarbons.
Color and Appearance
Colorless to light yellow clear liquid
Recommended use levels of SiSiB® ASS8560 silicone adjuvant for agriculture are between 3 - 10%, based on the oil content of the “in-can” formulation. Such use levels deliver between 0.03% - 0.1% of SiSiB® ASS8560 in the spray tank application. For example, if a mineral oil contains 5% SiSiB® ASS8560, and is applied at 1%, this will deliver 0.05% SiSiB® ASS8560 to the spray tank.
Addition of 5% SiSiB® ASS8560 to either mineral oil or methylsoyate may significantly increase the spread area relative to these oils alone. This increase in spreading properties can be quite significant since it enables better coverage and effective delivery of many oil based pesticide formulations using lower spray application volumes.
SiSiB® ASS8560 polyalkyleneoxide modified heptamethyltrisiloxane by SiSiB is supplied in 200Kg, 50Kg, or 25Kg Plastic barrel, or up to clients’ request.
In the unopened original container SiSiB® ASS8560 has a shelf life of two years in a dry and cool place, avoiding exposing to the sun.
