FlexiSolv® DBE® esters - Agricultural Carrier Solvent

Solvents are often used to transport active ingredients literally into the field, either in a concentrated form or let down in water. The traditional solvents for this application include certain aromatic solvents. FlexiSolv® DBE® esters are a good choice when reformulation becomes necessary.

So, how easy is it to re-formulate?

  • Re-formulation: It is usually necessary to tailor a blend of safe solvents to make a new formulation, and FlexiSolv® DBE® esters score well as it is miscible with most other solvents.
  • Registration: Finding a functioning system is not the end of the story. A newly formulated system will need to be registered for agricultural use in the relevant country. The good news is that the chance of success is very high when a new safer formulation is designed with FlexiSolv® DBE® esters.
  • Benefit: FlexiSolv® DBE® esters are readily biodegradable, non-flammable and have a mild, fruity odor. And, with its excellent solvency power the resulting formulation may require less solvent usage.
