StarLig surfactants have many important properties that make them an invaluable resource for the formulation of crop protection chemicals. Our products mainly find use in Wettable Powders, Water Dispersible Granules, and Suspension Concentrates, though they can be found in other formulation types. Both sodium and calcium lignosulphonates are commonly used in this application.
Below we list some formulation examples of StarLig dispersants with common commercial active ingredients.

Note: the above are given to illustrate the formulation possibilities of StarLig dispersants, and whilst all represent viable formulations no guarantees can be given beyond this.
StarLig dispersants also provide a number of other important and profitable characteristics, such as UV protection, crystal growth inhibition in hard water situations, and the unique ability to perform as both a dispersant and binder. Plus of course they are REACH exempt, and derived from a sustainable and managed forestry program.
