Function Gold

Features

‘Function Gold’ is a new innovation in silicone adjuvants that combines the beneficial effects of adjuvants together with pH balancing and pH indicator technology. The formulation has a special blend of silicone surfactants to maximize the effects of foliar spraying agrochemicals. For example:  Spreading, wetting, Penetration and Agrochemical Compatibility.

‘Function Gold’ allows farmers to control and track the pH level of the solution when applying agrochemical and nutritional sprays. The pH level is of critical importance for the efficacy of Agrochemicals. One such effect is for example is ‘Alkaline Hydrolysis’:

Pesticides may undergo alkaline hydrolysis, in which a pH greater than 7 causes chemical degradation of certain pesticides in the presence of ions. Alkaline water disassociates or fragments pesticide molecules that results in the release of individual ions (electrically charged atoms), which then reassemble with other ions. These new combinations have no insecticidal or miticidal activity; thus reducing the effectiveness of a pesticide application.”

Function Gold not only provides the major benefits of silicone adjuvants, but also reduces cost and increases yields and crop protection for farmers.
