H-Sil® STS is a low-molecular-weight, nonionic silicone surfactant that imparts low surface tension to formulated household and agricultural products. It improves the wetting and detergency of neutral household cleaning detergents and degreasers on hard surfaces. This product will improve the wetting, spreading, and penetration of agricultural chemicals and is an additive for use in pesticide products or as a tank-mix adjuvant. It can achieve surface tensions of 22 m/M with rates as low as 0.01% in aqueous-based agriculture and coating formulas, thus improving spreading across a variety of surfaces. This product is exempt from tolerance under 40 CFR 180.1001(c) for agricultural uses.
