An Additive that Improves the Performance of a Pesticide.

RCM-SPRAYMAX-85 work to improve the performance of pesticides do so by enhancing thereaction of the pesticide solution when it comes into contact with the leaf surface.

RCM-SPRAYMAX-85 helps reduce surfacetension to allow a pesticide to cover, penetrate and adhere to the leaf's surface depending on whether they have anon-ionic charge.

  • Anionic, Non-ionic and Cationic Charges are ChemicalBonds, which affect the Relationship between SpraySolutions and Leaf Surfaces.


Like-poles of magnets will repel each other and unlike-poles attract. Spray adjuvants haveproperties similar to magnets. Most leaf surfaces are negatively charged and RCM-SPRAYMAX-85has neutrally charged


  • Negatively charged solutions are referred to as ANIONIC
  • Neutrally charged solutions are referred to as NONIONIC
  • Positively chargedsolutions are referredto as CATIONIC
  • When a negatively charged solution comes in contactwith a negatively chargedleaf surface the solution willbe repelled or caused tospread over the leaf.
  • When a neutrally charged solution comes in contact with a negatively charged leaf surface the solution will penetrate and spread on the leaf.
  • When a positively charged solution comes in contact with a negatively charged leaf surface the solution will be attracted or caused to stick on the leaf.

Spreaders :

In order for many pesticides to perform to their full capacity, they must thoroughly coat all parts of the targetplants. An even coating is extremely important for contactpesticides. However, because most pesticides are appliedusing water as the carrier, surface tension causes spray solution droplets to slide off of plant surfaces, leaving areasuncovered. RCM-SPRAYMAX-85 that reduce the surfacetension of spray solution droplets to the point that theycan spread and blend together to uniformly coat plantsurfaces, avoiding costly runoff of spray material.


Stickers :

Once a pesticide has been applied to a plant's surface,it must stay there long enough to perform its function.
Rainstorms, fog, irrigation water and other environmentalcircumstances can cause pesticides to wash off
before they have had a chance to work to their full potential.

RCM-SPRAYMAX-85 that help pesticide spray solution droplets cover and adhere firmly to plant surfaces andresist being washed off.

Penetrants :


Many pesticides must be able to penetrate into a plant's cuticle in order to perform effectively. This is not easy for pesticides to do because most leaves have a hairy, waxy surface that acts as a barrier to the cuticle. Penetrants are spray adjuvants that cause the wax part icleson a leaf's surface to stand upright, which opens up passage to the leaf's cuticle. This encourages rapid penetration of the pesticide which allows it to act quicker. Penetrants, because they allow rapid penetration, also make pesticides less vulnerable to breakdown by ultraviolet light.

Drift Control Agents :

Most pesticides are applied to cropsby means of some type of spray.
The nozzle size, angle and Pressure with which the pesticides areapplied can be controlled. However, many of the pesticides spray dropletsmay not reach their intended target. In fact, most small droplets driftaway from the target, especially inwindy conditions. This can be a verycostly pesticide application problem,because droplets that are not on theintended target are either wasted in the air.
RCM-SPRAYMAX-85 reduces spray mist by increasing the size of the droplets

Compatibility Agents :

Mixing an herbicide, an insecticide, a fungicideand a nutrient together in one tank is an acceptedspraying method. The combination of productssaves time. One application across the field canincrease the number of pests controlled. However,these products are not necessarily compatibleand may not mix uniformly. So, the time-savingmethod could become a costly waste of severalproducts that are unable to perform because they are incompatible with each other.
