Pro-XTG (Thickener & Suspension Stabilizer for water-based pesticides) (CAS NO: 11138-66-2)

Chemical name: Xanthan Gum

Chemical nature: Polysaccharide gum produced by the fermentation of carbohydrate with the bacterium Xanthomonas campestris
Outstanding merits:
With very low concentration, Pro-XTG gives high viscosity while keeps extreme pseudoplasticity, or shear thinning. And it has outstanding stability with respect to pH, salt and heat. Besides, Pro-XTG has excellent compatibility even synergistic effect with other thickener and suspending agent like magnesium aluminum silicate or additives like smectite clay. Because of its high molecular weight, Pro-XTG also can be part of anti-drift agent.

Pro-XTG functions as a hydrophilic colloid to thicken, suspend and stabilize water-based pesticide formulations. The dosage of Pro-XTG is about 0.1% of the whole system. Prepare the liquid of Pro-XTG with certain preservative in advance to make it thoroughly hydrated and add it at the end of the milling cycle.
