Dispersants

Dow dispersants facilitate suspension and dispersment for wettable pesticide and fertilizer powders.

Block copolymer dispersants are excellent steric stabilizers for suspension concentrate and emulsion in water formulations.

Our ACCUMER™, DOWFAX™, POWERBLOX™ and TERGITOL™ Dispersants offer excellent wetting performance, can adhere to waxy plant surfaces and are compatible with a wide range of active ingredients.
