agrimax™ gr polymers
Agrimax™ gr 100 polymers are used to raise viscosity in water-based systems and to modify viscosity in spray drift applications. This product is comprised of natural, water-soluble polysaccharides. Agrimax™ GR 200 polymer, a hydroxypropyl guar, is an easily dispersed cold-water-soluble polysaccharide derivative that provides high viscosity at low concentrations. Both products can be used in suspended concentrates, suspo-em...
agriculture specialties polymer series
natrosol™ hec Natrosol™ hydroxyethylcellulose is a free-flowing powder which provides rheological control and lubricity properties. It is easily dissolved in cold or hot water, resulting in clear solutions. Natrosol™ hec is soluble in glycerol, but insoluble in many organic solvents. It also has good solubility in hydro-alcohol systems with up to 60 percent alcohol. klucel™ modified cellulose Klucel™ modified c...
agrimer™ pa polymers
Agrimer™ pa polymer is a linear, low-molecular-weight polyacrylic acid used to aid mineral dispersion. Comprised of 30% solids dispersed, it prevents sedimentation. Agrimer™ pa polymer is best used as a soil conditioner or as a polymeric co-dispersant.
agrimer™ vema polymers
Agrimer™ VEMA polymers are based on linear alternating polymers (methyl vinyl ether/maleic anhydride)that can be further modified to adjust polymer’s properties. benefits surface active polymers (nonionic and anionic) forms derivatives that can impart controlled release properties with certain actives polyelectrolytic properties adhesive and cohesive properties forms transparent films suggested applications polymeric co-disper...
agrimer™ AT and ATF crosslinked polymers
Agrimer™ AT polymer is a cross-linked Agrimer™ PVP polymer that absorbs and swells with water or other solvent but is insoluble in aqueous and organic media. Agrimer™ AT polymer has high capillary hydration capacity that provides high efficiency disintegration in tablets and granules. Agrimer™ ATF polymer is a version with a finer particle size. Both products are stable under acidic and alkaline conditions and excellent dr...
aqualon™ aqueous polymers
Add aqualon™ aqueous binders for effective anode slurry preparation and graphite binding Aqualon™ carboxy methyl cellulose (CMC) products perform as both aqueous binders and rheology modifiers. These CMC products are typically used in conjunction with styrene butadiene (SB) latex to improve the binding strength of the active graphite on the copper collector. SB alone cannot generate slurry stability for the graphite powder. The CMCs i...
Easy-Sperse™ polymers are effective dispersants of hydrophobic actives. Easy-Sperse™ polymer is based on a copolymer of the monobutyl/ethyl ester of poly (methyl vinyl ether/maleic acid) partially neutralized with sodium hydroxide. The material is an excellent film-former and is supplied as a 25 percent aqueous solution. Easy-Sperse™ P-20 polymer is a proprietary polymer blend spray-dried, optimized composite polyvinyl pyrrolido...
sterin™ insect irradiation indicators
Sterin™ insect irradiation indicators are for use with the Sterile Insect Technique (SIT). Sterin™ indicators provide positive visual verification that insects have been irradiated to the specified minimum dosage. Ashland possesses more than a quarter century of expertise in irradiation indicators. When attached to containers containing insects, Sterin™ irradiation indicators display whether the insects have been irradiate...
agsolEx™ super wetters
AgsolEx™ 8 water-insoluble surface-active super wetter is ideal for liquid formulations; improves wetting, penetration of active ingredients through the cuticle and inhibits crystal formation. AgsolEx™ 8 and agsolEx™ 12 super wetters have a unique combination of solvency and surface activity. AgsolEx™ 12 super wetter is more hydrophobic and surface active than agsolEx™ 8 super wetter.
