T-Mulz® COE-APF is a specially developed APE-free emulsifier for use in concentrated agricultural crop oil formulations. When combined with suitable crop oils, this emulsifier is designed to enhance the performance of herbicides. The 40% crop oil concentrate containing T-Mulz® COE-APF as the emulsifier demonstrates superior emulsion performance and cold stability.

Functions: Emulsifier

Features: Emulsifying, Enhances Herbicide Performance

Notes:
1. The performance of T-Mulz® COE-APF is comparable to T-Mulz® COE in both crop oil concentrates.
2. In fact, at 40% concentration, T-Mulz® COE-APF was superior in performance to T-Mulz® COE.
3. 2% ammonium sulfate solution was added as an extra testing parameter since it is often used in customer applications.

Ledgend:

  • Spontaneity refers to the initial dispersion of the emulsion concentrate into the test water. The symbols used to rate spontaneity are:

P = Poor F = Fair G = Good E = Excellent

  • Layering is rated with the following system:

N = nil or none T = Trace 0.5,1,2,3... = % layering observed (Atlab Viewer Scale)

  • The symbols “+” and “-“ are used when the spontaneity or layering is slight more or less than the given rate value. For example, an emulsion with “G-“ rating would display spontaneity that is slight less than “G” or good but is better than “F” or fair. An emulsion with “1+” rating for layering would display layering that is slightly more than a 1 milliliter measurement but less than a 1.5 milliliter measurement.
