Specific fine chemicals allow the production of highly effective plant protection agents with low environmental impact. SILFOAM® antifoam agents provide effective, long-lasting foam control during the production and application of plant protection agents. The antifoam agents are added during manufacture, or subsequently by the end user. In the case of fertilizers, special silicones and pyrogenic silica facilitate conveying and warehousing. The optimum distribution of the plant protection agent on the plant is ensured by specific silicone surfactants. They improve wetting and spreading of the plant protection agent.
All WACKER products suitable for use in agrochemicals comply with the applicable EPA regulations (CFR 180.1001).
