STRI trials show significant benefits to the use of Hydrozone and Aquazone wetting agents - STRI_Testing_01.17.pdf

Hydrozone

Hydrozone is a 100% active, non-ionic reverse block co-polymer wetting agent developed for use on amenity grass, specifically golf greens and tees, to help prevent the occurrence of localised dry patch (LDP) and thus maximise grass health.

Hydrozone is an advanced premium product formulated to give maximum performance and extended residence time in the root zone.

The benefits of Hydrozone include:

  • Treatment and preventative for localised dry patch
  • Non-scorch formula
  • Excellent tank mix capability
  • Potential to reduce water consumption where no turf wetter is currently used
  • Assists in maximising the effectiveness of a range of soil chemicals and fertilisers

Treat Rate: 20 L / Ha; Recommended monthly application between March and September to prevent dry patch occurring.

SDS available on request.

For further information read Hydrozone Technical Data Sheet.

Aquazone

Aquazone is a 100% active, non-ionic standard block co-polymer wetting agent developed for use on amenity grass, specifically golf greens and tees, to help prevent the occurrence of localised dry patch (LDP) and thus maximise grass health.

The benefits of Aquazone include:

  • Treatment and preventative for localised dry patch
  • Non-scorch formula
  • Excellent tank mix capability
  • Potential to reduce water consumption where no turf wetter is currently used
  • Readily Biodegradable
  • Assists in maximising the effectiveness of a range of soil chemicals and fertilisers

Treat Rate: 20 L / Ha; Recommended monthly application between March and September to prevent dry patch occurring.

SDS available on request.

For further information read Aquazone Technical Data Sheet.

Aquazone Pellets

A unique 100% active, block co polymer wetting agent pellet with very low scorch potential for use in hose end applicators.  Aquazone pellets will reduce the surface tension, thus increasing wetting capability of water applied to areas most susceptible to dry patch such as bunker edges.

The benefits of Aquazone Pellets include:

  • Effective wetting performance
  • Very low scorch potential
  • Easy removal from pot
  • Pellets dissolve uniformly and will not break up or disintegrate in use
  • 100% surfactant formulation – No binders or diluents

MSDS available on request.

For further information read Aquazone Pellets Technical Data Sheet.

Aquazone Irrigation Tank Tablet

A 3kg tablet for addition to irrigation tanks.  The tablet will dissolve slowly and uniformly, reducing the surface tension of the water applied through the irrigation system.

The benefits of Aquazone Irrigation Tank Tablets include:

  • Increases the wetting power of irrigation water
  • Tablet dissolve uniformly and do not break up or disintegrate
  • 100% surfactant tablet – no binders
  • Mild system cleaning effect
  • Packed in a water soluble bag for ease of removal from pail

MSDS available on request.

GBR Intensive Wetter

Penetrant and curative for localised dry patch. Powerful blend of surfactants that aids water infiltration and can emulsify hydrophobic materials which can then be removed with a strong water flush.

The benefits of GBR Intensive Wetter include:

  • Highly concentrated product means low use rates, cost effectiveness and less packaging and storage space required.
  • Penetrant and curative effect from one product
  • Aids infiltration of water
  • Reduces run off
  • May reduce localised water logging
  • Curative action for spot treatment
  • Helps to create a more even playing surface.

Treat Rate: See Data sheet for relevant treat rates; SDS available on request.

Influx

A powerful penetrant wetting agent developed for use on amenity grass, in particular Fairways. GBR Influx provides effective wetting within the rootzone and can reduce water run-off.

The benefits of Influx include:

  • Cost Effective for Fairways
  • Reduced Water Run off
  • Residual Wetting ability
  • Powerful penetrant properties
  • Dew Dispersal effect

Treat Rate: 10 Litres / Ha; SDS available on request.

For further information read Influx Technical Data Sheet.

Influx Excel

A highly concentrated ethoxylated siloxane based wetting agent developed for use on amenity grass, in particular Fairways. GBR Influx Excel boasts much lower treat rates than GBR Influx and can provide effective wetting within the rootzone and reduces water run-off.

The benefits of Influx Excel include:

  • Highly concentrated formula with much lower treat rate than most penetrants.
  • Cost Effective for Fairways
  • Reduced Water Run off
  • Residual Wetting ability
  • Powerful penetrant properties
  • Dew Dispersal effect

Treat Rate: 1 - 2 Litres / Ha

For further information read Influx Technical Data Sheet.

Eco-Wet Penetrant

A very effective penetrant wetting agent, generating low surface tensions in water (below 26 dynes/cm at 1% in water).  Ecowet Penetrant is based on surfactants derived from natural sources.  The water loving part of the molecules are based on sugars, whilst the oil loving part of the molecules are based on fatty acids from vegetable sources. The result is a wetting agent that does not compromise on performance.

Treat Rate: 5 Litres / Ha
