BB5 is an adjuvant containing a combination of nonionic and anionic components and is suitable for ground and foliar applications.
IF YOU ARE USING:
Foliar feeds, systemic & contact crop protection chemicals which are subject to alkaline hydrolysis: (i.e. pH sensitive pesticides) and salt antagonism (reaction with hard waters)
USE BB5 FOR:
|Composition||In packs of|

The incorporation of a unique color indicator in BB5 makes it easy to see once the optimal pH range has been obtained. The addition of BB5 to the spray tank will acidify the water which will turn into a pink-red color once the optimal pH range of approximately pH 4.5-5.0 is reached.
BB5 automatically reduces the water’s surface tension of the spray mixture allowing the spray droplets to flatten and spread, giving greater coverage and hence increased efficacy.
BB5 complexes harmful salts that are detrimental to the performance of crop protection chemicals. Herbicides such as glyphosate and 2.4D are negatively influenced by salts found in hard water and therefore need to be removed.
The built-in penetration in BB5 moves the pesticide through the waxy cuticular layer, ensuring better performance.
By adding BB5 to the spray water, the water becomes increasingly acidic turning pink (at pH 4.5-5.0) once the optimum pH is reached. This prevents alkaline hydrolysis (chemical decomposition) of the active ingredient. In the unlikely event of over-addition of BB5 the spray water is automatically buffered at approximately pH3.0 9i.e. no further pH change occurs)
BB5 allows various spray combinations eliminating additional sprays and helping to save costs.
With adhesive and wetting action.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

|VERY HARD||220 and above|
Avoid prolonged contact with concentrate. Eye irritation may be caused. In case of contact with eyes, flush immediately with water for at least 15 minutes. Prevent contamination of eating utensils, food, drinking water and feeds. Destroy empty containers and do not use for any other purpose. Rinse empty containers three times with a volume of water equal to at least one tenth of that of the container and add the rinsing to the content of the spray tank before disposing of the container.
