Wetting Agents

Wetting Agents

Wetting agents or surfactants lower the surface tension between a liquid and another liquid or solid matter and as a result, they act as emulsifiers, dispersants, detergents, and water infiltration agents. Wetting agents work by providing a binding layer between the applied product and the leaf surface which helps a spray stick to the leaf surface and provide the greatest benefit and prevent wasted product. Surfactants make water wetter especially on waxy leaves and biodegradable, water-soluble and non-toxic wetting agents improving the sticking, wetting and absorption qualities of any garden product you wish to use.
