Cognis to launch Agnique BL surfactants

German specialty chemical company Cognis (Monheim) is launching a new class of alkoxylated alkyl polyglycoside surfactants for use as “green” adjuvants in formulations of the herbicide, glyphosate. The Agnique BL series have been designed to meet the demand for a high-performance potentiator that is easy to use and formulate around glyphosate derivatives. Cognis says that as the surfactants are based on green chemistry using environmentally-friendly materials that are safe to handle, they allow the formulation of label-free glyphosate blends. They provide an alternative to tallow-amine based products which currently carry a note saying that they are “harmful” on the label. Users also benefit from rapid dispersion of formulations and reduced foaming.
