Permeate ® SP 50

Superspreader for excellent adhesion and retention and soil wetting

Permeate ® SP 50 is a polyether trisiloxane. In aqueous solutions, it imparts super spreading and dramatically reduce surface tension. Therefore, the biological performance of biocontrol products can be significantly enhanced by superior wetting of hydrophobic surfaces, in particular leaves and other parts of plants. This creates better uptake through penetration of cuticular waxes and stomatal flooding.

Benefits

  • Permeate ® SP 50 is the only adjuvant that can produce a phenomenon known as “superspreading” i.e. the rapid coverage of hydrophobic surfaces such as leaves at concentrations of 0.1 % or less.
  • Permeate ® SP 50 can be used in tank mix applications as well in formulations.
  • Permeate ® SP 50 is biocompatible with microbial control agents (i.e Trichoderma spp., Beauveria bassiana, Bacillus spp. and entomopathogenic nematodes).
  • Permeate ® SP 50 is a carrier liquid for microbial formulations, providing excellent shelf-life results.
  • Permeate ® SP 50 is stable in sealed containers for 4 years. It is not sensitive to freezing.

How does it work

The outstanding physical chemical properties of Permeate ® SP 50 result in unique modes of action which in turn provide benefits to the farmer because:

  • Permeate ® SP 50 allows a larger amount of active ingredient to enter the plant, the active
  • Works even under difficult conditions.
  • Permeate ® SP 50 provides rainfastness to agricultural sprays; rain an hour after application
  • Can be tolerated with no need for re-spray.
  • Permeate ® SP 50 permits the reduction of spray volumes by up to 30%, saving time, money and environmental resources.

FAQ

A: Permeate® SP 50 is an innovative super spreader and penetrant surfactant.

A: Permeate ® SP 50 is a non-ionic surfactant. In aqueous solutions, it imparts super spreading and
dramatically reduces surface tension. Therefore, the biological performance of biocontrol 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.

  • A. Arable and vegetable crops:
    200 ml/ha to improve wetting, spreading, and uptake of pesticides with systemic action.
    125 ml/ha to improve wetting and spreading of pesticide with contact action.

    Horticultural crops and orchards:
    200-300 ml/ha, depending on the growth stage.
    These dosages allow for various water volumes. Be in line with regulatory compliances; please do
    not exceed the maximum recommended concentration.

A. Yes, Permeate® SP 50 is compatible with biopesticides, biostimulants, biofertilisers, organic
fertilizers, organic manures, and chemical fertilizers/pesticides/fungicides.

A. Yes, you can. Permeate® SP 50 is designed to protect the effectiveness of pesticides and foliar
fertilizers even under unfavorable conditions. It ensures the delivery of active ingredients even
during hot and dry weather conditions or after a cold period when the waxy layer of plants is thicker.

A. Yes, Permeate® SP 50 is compatible with organic farming practices, it is OMRI (Organic Materials
Review Institute) listed.

A. While Permeate® SP 50 is designed for agricultural applications, it’s crucial to keep pets and
children away from treated areas until the product has been absorbed or dried to prevent accidental
ingestion or contact.

Yes, Permeate® SP 50 can be used with other plant health products and foliar nutrients. It is
beneficial in improving the distribution and passage of plant health products through the waxy
cuticle layer on the leaf surface. This allows for better absorption of the nutrients without causing
any damage to the leaf surface.
