Agrochemical Industry

Sterling Organics & Chemicals is supplying substantial quantities of nonionic ,anionic and their blend to a growing number of users who employ them as ingredients in their pesticide formulations as emulsifier formulation as emulsifiers,wetting,dispersing and spreading agents. Our customers in many segments of the process industries realize the four positive advantages:

(A) Sterling Organics & Chemicals surface active raw materials are available in any quantity.
(B) Products meet their rigid specifications.
(C) Sterling Organics & Chemicals prices are competitive.
(D) The products are readily tailored to their specific needs.For insecticides,pesticides we have developed a pair of emulsifiers which when used in a proper proportion works well for almost all insecticides,pesticides,herbicides,etc. the products described below are used mostly for the emulsifiable concentrates mentioned overleaf.The percentages of emulsifiers described for a particular solvent-pesticide system may vary on changing the solvent system. Our daily experience proves to us,that our knowledge of emulsifiers or our knowledge of diverse customer needs-each taken separately is not enough.Rather it is the combination of both of these factors,which greatly increases our ability to be of service to our customers.Experience which we gain through the solution of specific problems helps us to solve similar problems that may occur in other processes. In those cases when anoff the shelf solution to a customers inquiry is not feasible,we willingly undertake the role of problem solvers.

In many cases as little as 2 to 3% of these emulsifiers show excellent exceptional spontaneity of emulsification and slow rates of creaming.This combination of versatility spontaneity and stability in the emulsions make these 'EMULSIONS' the most outstanding pesticide emulsifiers on the market.Even when a new toxicant system is to be considered which may not be includedin the list,one of the above or a blend of them will definitely serve the purpose. The above recommended percentage of Emulsols produce emulsions ,which are stable in hard water of 340 ppm, and even in 500 ppm, for more than an hour with almost no sedimentation or creaming.The emulsion of the concentrate on pouring into water is thick,milky and passes all pesticide formulation standards.The emulsifiers are clearly soluble in the concentrates with excellent storage stability hot and cold. The emulsifiers are nontoxic and the constituents do not react in any way with the active pesticide ingredients.

Besides the few pesticides mentioned in the above table we have also worked out most suitable and excellent emulsifier blends for pesticides such as Heptachlor,Pyrethrum,2,4 D.D.V.P.,Weedicides,Nematocides etc. We can undertake the work of making tailor-made emulsifier for specific formulations.
