Wetting Agents

PenetraX

PenetraX is a unique new penetrant wetting agent that is engineered to last longer, performing its function for a greater period of time after application. After application to rootzones, wetting agents will deplete over time through water washout and biodegradation. For a penetrant surfactant, the ability to partition into rain water to lower its surface tension and increase its removal is an important function so the washout potential needs to be maintained. However penetrant surfactants will rapidly biodegrade once in the soil and this can be undesirable. Bioaccumulation of the wetting agent is also undesirable. PenetraX will resist biodegradation for longer (whilst still ultimately biodegrading) and thus remain in the rootzone performing its function for longer.

As well as for summer use, penetrant wetting agents can bring benefits to sports turf over the autumn and winter helping the flow of water through the profile and dispersing surface water. Saturated surfaces can reduce the flow of air in the profile underneath and lead to anaerobic conditions – penetrant wetting agents can play a role in alleviating this under certain conditions.

  • Concentrated formulation
  • Excellent wetting performance
  • Aids water infiltration
  • Can reduce localised water logging
  • Helps create a more even playing surface
  • Supports the maintenance of aerobic conditions over autumn and winter
