Alcohol alkoxylates are commonly used as emulsifiers and wetting agents in agrochemical formulations. They are biodegradable and eco-friendly replacements for alkylphenol ethoxylates, when it comes to stabilizing a formulation or enhancing the blooming of the spray mixture.

With well-defined polymerization of ethylene oxide (EO) and propylene oxide (PO), a common alcohol-based surfactant obtains a special performance.
These products are the specialties among the LUCRAMUL® surfactants. The compatibility, solubility, foaming behavior and wetting effect, as well as penetration, can be controlled.
For example, LUCRAMUL® AG 810 is a silicone-free wetting agent which reduces the surface tension dramatically.
LUCRAMUL® AG 411 and LUCRAMUL® BEPO 1 are high molecular weight polymers and have the ability to suppress crystal growth and precipitation in the spray mixture.
The ethopropoxylated polyarylphenole LUCRAMUL® AG 201 is designed to work as a highly efficient dispersing agent, e.g., in SC formulations.
Depending on the structure the EO/PO alkoxylated LUCRAMUL® products have a remarkable impact on the static and dynamic surface tension.
For example, LUCRAMUL® AG 131 is strong and fast in reducing the surface tension. This is interesting for an evenly spreading of a liquid on a target surface.
LUCRAMUL® AG 101 and LUCRAMUL® AG 103 also improve the spreading on surfaces and work ultra-fast. Additionally, they decrease the rebounding of droplets on targets and increase the retention of active ingredients
