Hydroxides and micronized
How it works on the leaf
The NANO.T technology allows to have in one litre of product millions of billions of particles with a dimension ranging between 1 and 100 nanometres with a wide specific surface area determining a high effectiveness and allowing a dense coating of the leaf (fig.2) as compared to the traditional technology (fig.1), considering the same quantity applied.
The copper example
Hydroxides, micronized vs NANO.T® Cu
Nanoparticles have a dimension one hundred times inferior to that of other products: in the chart green curve, the majority of the particles of NANO.t Cu have a dimension of 20 nm while other standard hydroxides, pink curve, measure around 7000 nm as well as the most innovative products such as micronized, blue curve, around 2000 nm.
- They require a higher dosage due to their major dimension and inferior uniformity of distribution
- Persistence is reduced in inverse proportion to the dimension of the particles
- They can disperse in the environment accumulating in the soil
- High effectiveness at low dosages nanoparticles have a wide surface contact area and distribute uniformly on the leaf, improving absorption
- Persistent on the leaf the formulation in colloidal suspension allows a better adhesive capacity to foliar waxes
- Lower environmental impact thanks to the low dosage and the improved adhesive capacity
- It improves the effectiveness of the products combined with it (wide range of miscibility with both fertilizers and/or pesticides)
