Hi-Yield Spreader Sticker (Nonionic Surfactant)
A water-soluble spray additive that makes water wetter and increases absorption, translocation and sticking of pesticides.
Low foaming and contains no oil.
Application Rates: 2 to 4 tablespoons per gallon of water when mixed with insecticides, miticides, fungicides, liquid fertilizers, and herbicides.
The nonionic surfactant is water-soluble through hydrogen bonds formation of hydrophilic moieties with water. As the temperature is raised, it reaches the point at which large aggregates of the nonionic surfactant separate out into a distinct phase. The temperature at which the phase separation occurs is referred to as the cloud point. The surfactant molecules partition into the oil phase above the cloud point and a large amount of water are solubilized in the oil phase near this temperature (Shinoda and Ogawa, 1967).
