Cleveland, OH – May 29, 2019 – Effective immediately, Elkem Silicones USA Corp., a global manufacturer of advanced silicone-based materials, appoints Palmer Holland as national distributor for the BLUESIL™ and SILCOLAPSE™ product lines.
Agrochemicals, which protect and enhance crops, often produce foam that hinders their efficiency and application on plants. Silcolapse™ silicone foam control agents and Bluesil™ silicone surfactants enhance manufacturing processes, improve productivity, and facilitate spreading and wetting performances on the plant.
Silcolapse™ is used for crop protection products such as herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, plant nutrients (fertilizers), and plant growth regulators and for home and garden applications. Bluesil™ is used for crop protection & crop nutrition as super spreaders and wetting agents. It improves the efficiency of actives in plants with super spreading performances.
“We are very excited about our new partnership with Elkem and the opportunities it will bring forward as we focus our efforts into Agrochemicals, HI&I, and other key markets,” said Chad Leighty, Palmer Holland Business Director – Agriculture. “The addition of the Bluesil™ and Silcolapse™ product lines to our portfolio will further solidify our foothold in the agriculture marketplace.”
Elkem Silicones’ ingredients are used in a wide range of agrichemical applications and at all stages in the manufacturing and growing process, as processing aids and formulation ingredients, as in-can or tank mix adjuvants. All of Elkem’s ingredients for crop and plant treatments are safe for people and the environment and comply with national and international regulatory standards.
