  • Agrochemicals are used as formulations based on one or more active ingredient(s). Formulations guarantee easy application, highest performance and safe handling.

    Depending on the stability, physical properties and application profile of the specific active ingredient, it must be decided whether a solid or liquid formulation and which specific type is most suitable. In addition, formulations usually contain additional components which may increase the activity or improve handling for the user.

    • Adjuvants

      An auxiliary, which is added to increase the effectiveness of an agrochemical, is called adjuvant. This may be due to several modes of action, such as facilitated wetting, penetration, or better retention. Our Synergen® brand offers a range of proven bio performance enhancers.

      The term "adjuvant" is often used for additives which are added to the spray liquid in the tank before application (so called "tank-mix adjuvants") while adjuvants incorporated in the formulation are called "built-in” or “in-can adjuvants". Adjuvants are traditionally most frequently combined with herbicides, however the use for fungicides and insecticides is increasing.

    • Emulsion in Water

      From an environmental point of view, the best solvent is of course water. In EWs, the active ingredient is usually dissolved in an organic solvent which is emulsified in water (liquid a.i.s may also be directly emulsified without an additional solvent).

      For EWs emulsifiers are required which give long-term storage-stable emulsions. The starting point can be based on common emulsifiable concentrate (EC) emulsifier systems. Emulsion stability is further improved by the use of additional co-emulsifiers or high-performance emulsifiers.

    • Oil Dispersion

      One of the latest formulation types are oil dispersions (ODs). This technology allows very efficient and environmentally friendly agrochemical formulations.

      In ODs the solid active ingredient is dispersed in the oil phase, making it especially suitable for water-sensitive or non-soluble active ingredients. When the oil dispersion comes into contact with water the formulation can either form an emulsion or a suspo emulsion.

      The oil-phase can comprise different oils such as mineral oils, vegetable oils or esters of vegetable oils.

      Special attention is needed with the auxiliaries in ODs: suitable oil-compatible dispersing agents and emulsifiers adjusted to the type of oil which form a stable emulsion after dilution with water.

    • Suspo Emulsion

      Sometimes it is necessary to combine active ingredients with strongly differing physical properties in one formulation to gain a broader activity spectrum.

      A suspo emulsion (SE) consists of an organic phase with a dissolved active ingredient and an aqueous suspension phase, in which the active ingredient is dispersed in water.

      The emulsifier/dispersing and wetting system used is normally designed from components of the EC/EW emulsifier system (emulsifiable concentrate/emulsion in water) and the SC (suspension concentrate) dispersing and wetting system.

    • Soluble Liquids

      Active ingredients which dissolve readily in water (usually salts of herbicidal compounds) can be formulated as soluble liquids (SL). To achieve a better wetting on plant leaves, additional wetting agents can be added to the concentrate. The biological performance is further improved by using adjuvants.

      By far the most important active ingredient formulated as SL is Glyphosate in form of its salts.

      The most common adjuvants for Glyphosate are fatty amine ethoxylates (Genamin® grades). However, certain amphoteric surfactants are gaining more importance (see our Synergen® range).

      An excellent solution for Glyphosate and other aqueous formulations which combines high efficacy with a perfect environmental profile is Synergen® GL 5, a unique adjuvant which is derived from renewable resources.

    • Water Dispersible Granule

      Solid formulations have the advantage of not containing any (critical) solvent. Water dispersible granules (WG) have more and more substituted wettable powders (WP) due to their reduced inhalation hazard during handling. However, a higher amount of wetting and dispersing agents is required since the easy and quick formation of a suspension after dilution of the granules with water is crucial.

      Solid formulations usually require the addition of a tank-mix adjuvant to achieve the desired performance.

      • Dispersogen 1494

        Dispersogen 1494 is an anionic sulfonated dispersing agent with no eye-irritancy for SC and WG formulations. more

      • The suppliers have not supported agro specific applications and corresponding exposure scenarios (e.g. EPA, REACh)
      • The toxicological and eco-toxicological profile of components does not meet local regulatory requirements

      The Clariant Crop Protection Team understands that guiding our customer through these minefields is a valuable service and goes beyond the pure selling of a chemical product. Therefore we are supporting agrochemical companies by offering the following service features.

      Service Features

      • Guide customers through local regulation requirements and discuss specific impacts
      • Support your registration of products for crop uses in specific inventories
      • Provide product specific information and conduct testing on toxicity, eco-toxicity if necessary
      • Assist you in the screening of the patent landscape around our products and formulations
      • Provide new product or formulation recommendations to optimize customer portfolio

      Customer Benefits

      • Reduce the risk of stepping into a regulatory trap
      • No limitation to marketing activities. No localized formulation design
      • Design the formulation in a sustainable way and offer meaningful value proposition to farmers
      • Reduce the risk of patent infringements and achieve a better planning of product launches
      • Get an expert view on the active portfolio and suggestions on new products meeting tomorrows requirements
    • Off-Patent Active Ingredient Solutions

      According to estimates the market share of patent protected pesticides is continuously declining and nowadays represent only about 25% of the pesticides market. Further patents for important active ingredients are about to expire in the next years. This means that competition in the agrochemical market will increase and there are growing opportunities for new players.

      What is important to know?

      • When do relevant patents for pesticides expire and are there other barriers to enter a market like SPCs (Supplementary Protection Certificates) or longer data protection periods?
      • What are the most relevant markets for a pesticide geographically, what are the most important target crops and how is it used ?
      • Will it be sufficient to enter a market with a re-engineered 1:1 replacement product or is it more promising to offer a further developed product with additional benefits like improved labeling or efficacy?

      The Clariant Crop Protection Team understands that guiding our customer through these challenging tasks is a valuable service and goes beyond the pure selling of a chemical product. Therefore we are supporting agrochemical companies by offering the following service features:

      Service Features

      • Monitoring which active ingredients will become off-patent
      • Identification of the most promising formulations under consideration of the most relevant regions, market formulations and target crops
      • Guide recipes for existing market benchmark products
      • Development of improved formulations with advantages versus market standards (e.g. in terms of labeling, higher loading, higher efficacy)

      Customer Benefits

      • Early formulation suggestions for promising active ingredients
      • Matching proposals based on inert ingredients according to regional requirements
      • Faster time-to-market as well as significantly reduced development costs
      • Options to differentiate from the competition, gain faster and higher market share with outstanding products

    Your Company

  • Clariant offers a complete range of additives for each formulation type and problem in crop protection. Our goal is to make agrochemical formulations more efficient and safe for the mutual benefit of manufacturers, consumers and the environment.

    The increasing demand for better performance and environmental acceptability of crop protection products is a driving force for continuous innovation in the fields of auxiliaries and formulation technology. Our current activities include the improvement of emulsifiers and dispersing agents as well as the development of adjuvants that lead to improved pesticides performance.

    Clariant has succeeded in introducing new products in this area; research and development was carried out in close co-operation with our customers. Our laboratories and production facilities located in various regions of the world will ensure that Clariant remains a strong partner for the crop protection industry.

    Agrochemicals are used as formulations based on one or more active ingredient(s). Formulations guarantee easy application, highest performance and safe handling.

    Depending on the stability, physical properties and application profile of the specific active ingredient, it must be decided whether a solid or liquid formulation and which specific type is most suitable. In addition, formulations usually contain additional components which may increase the activity or improve handling for the user.

    Innovation  

    We all need to be sure that chemicals used in the production of our food meet all regulatory and environmental requirements.
    Clariant anticipated this need and has taken steps in its product development to meet and exceed regulatory requirements - and so customers can be reassured.
    Through our EcoTain concept we provide solutions which truly deserve the word "green".
