BREAK-THRU® - Technology for Agriculture

Oil enhancers

Many pesticides exhibit limited water solubility, so mineral and vegetable oils often serve as the carriers to deliver these actives to plants or pests. BREAK-THRU® Oil Enhancer are unique additives designed to improve the performance of oil based crop protection formulations. 

They work by lowering the surface tension of oils and solvents, thus enabling faster and more complete leaf coverage and penetration into the plant. Added in small amounts, they enhance the efficacy of oil based pesticides formulations. As oil preferences and compositions vary globally, the BREAK-THRU® OE comprise a series of products designed for a broad spectrum of oils and formulation types. These products are suitable for use in EC, EW, SC, WDG and OD crop protection formulations as well as in crop and mineral oil.

BREAK-THRU® OE 446 is easy to apply and versatile as it is both an oil and water soluble adjuvant. BREAK-THRU® OE 446 is particularly suitable for formulations based on methylated vegetable oils and some solvents. As it is also water soluble, it can be used in aqueous formulations. BREAK-THRU® OE 446 has been found to prevent agglomeration of solid particles and inhibit their crystallization. It can be also applied in seed treatments to reduce abrasion and dust creation.
