Crop protection

With the global population expected to expand by an additional 2 billion people over the next 25 years, agricultural efficiencies are absolutely necessary to feed this increase in population. Meeting this challenge requires superior crop protection products that meet regulatory and environmental requirements. Our portfolio of high-solvency hydrocarbon fluids  is designed to help agricultural pesticide producers formulate products that are up to the challenge.

Hydrocarbon fluids have been proven in crop protection formulations for decades. The most widespread use of the heavy aromatic fluids is in emulsifiable concentrate formulations, where the fluid dissolves the active ingredient and acts as a carrier for formulation components.

Other grades are also used in crop protection and spray oil applications. Worldwide manufacturing and distribution capabilities ensure that consistent, high-quality products are available where they are needed.


Applications and benefits

  • High solvency power, allowing high active-ingredient concentration and delivery
  • High flash points and low vapor pressure for safe and cost-effective transportation and storage
  • Special grades that are naphthalene-depleted (ND)
  • High density for improved emulsion stability
