White Oils – Phytosanitary Industry
Protecting crops, plants and trees, as well as livestock, from harmful insects and pests requires products that can do the job while ensuring safety. In the formulation of these products — from pesticides to insecticides to fungicides and other plant-protection compounds — white oils play a key role.
Many manufacturers in this industry choose our Marcol™ 82 for their formulations, because it offers the right specifications to be used either as an active ingredient or as a co-formulant. The high purity of Marcol 82, which meets the standards of the Pharmacopoeias, along with its aromatic-free nature, make it ideal for phytosanitary applications.
Its narrow boiling range ensures that lower ends do not evaporate too quickly (with no effect on the application) and that higher ends do not leave carbon deposits.
Marcol 82 has the optimal molecular weight to emulsify and spread efficiently through the application. The excellent solvency of this white oil ensures proper mixture in liquid emulsion and other product ingredients.
Marcol 82 is a popular choice for manufacturers seeking white oil with exceptional purity and quality. It is used in:*
• Household insecticides
• Tree-protecting sprays
• Cattle sprays
• Crop pesticides
• Plant sprays
Marcol 82 (CAS number 8042-47-5):
