Agriculture Silicone Lo-248

Countertype Product: Silwet 408
CAS NO.: 67674-67-3
Lo-248 is a superspreading surfactant based on a trisiloxane ethoxylate, it lowers the surface tension
of spray solutions, as the contact angle of spray solution on leaf surfaces is reduced, leading to an increase in spray
Lo-248 is a non-ionic in nature, making it useful with a broad range of Agrochemicals formulations.
Unlike other trisoloxane alkoxylates, which are negatively affected by oil based components (EC, spray oils, etc.), Lo-248
provides enhanced spreading in many of these types of formulations relative to competitive organosilicone based adjuvants.
Superspreader for soluble liquid and emulsifiable concentrate formulations
Promotes spray volume reduction
mproves spray coverage significantly
Promotes rapid uptake of Agrochemicals (rainfastness)
Typical properties
Active Content percent: 100%
Appearance: Colorless to pale yellow clear liquid
Cloud Point (0.1 wt%) : <10 °C
Freezing point: <2 °C
Viscosity at 25°C (77°F): 30-50 cSt
Surface tension (0.1% aq.): 20-21mN/m
Use rates
Lo-248 may be use as a component in Agrochemicals formulations. Although organosilicone surfactants are subject to
hydrolysis under acidic or basic conditions, Lo-248 may be still stable while the pH value of Agrochemicals formulation falls
in 5-8
AS a tank mix adjuvant
Lo-248 is most effective as tank-side adjuvant to improve spray coverage, to improve uptake or to allow for a reduction in
spray volume, as Lo-248 provides adequate coverage in many low volume spray applications at rates between 0.025% and
Typical applications as follows
Application Rates
Herbicides 0.025%-0.15%
Insecticides 0.025%-0.1%
Fungicides 0.015%-0.05%
plant growth regulators 0.025%-0.05%
Fertilizers and micronutrients 0.015%-0.1%
