Agriculture - Agrochemical Carriers (Base)
Summary of uses
Active ingredients contained in agrochemicals produce an effect in small amounts.
In order to apply small amounts of active ingredients efficiently over a large farm, they must be applied in a diluted form.
Generally, because of ease of granulation, bentonite and other inorganic materials are used as carriers for granular agrochemicals, and play a part in securing the safety of agrochemicals and reducing their environmental impact.
As agrochemical carriers, various inorganic materials are used since they are expected to make agrochemicals lighter and produce a sustained-release effect.
Carriers for granular formulations
We mainly provide bentonite for carriers for granular agrochemicals.
Generally, a carrier is used mainly as an extender (or to dilute active ingredients), but bentonite blends right in water and is easy to granulate, and can be expected to produce a sustained-release effect.
Carriers for fine-grain agrochemicals
Some agrochemicals take a form called fine-grain agent F. The Clay Fine Grain Agent series is natural mineral-based fine-grain base materials granulated to a size range of 180 to 710 µm, the criterion of fine-grain agent F.
By impregnating the carrier with various active ingredients, agrochemicals can be made.
