General Information


In aquatic applications, SINKER increases thickness and elasticity of pesticide solutions which improves sinking, contact and sticking of pesticides to aquatic plant surfaces. SINKER confines the pesticide to the target area and at a higher concentrate for a longer contact time. SINKER should be used in quiescent as well as in rapidly flowing waters. It may be sprayed by aerial or ground equipment, injected by boats equipped with sinker trailing hoses or sprayed by brush guns.

In spraying operations, SINKER is an effective, easy-to-use adjuvant for deposition improvement and drift retardation. It greatly reduces mist and particle evaporation resulting in significant reduction of spray drift. SINKER is designed to work at very low concentrations and can be used with most water soluble, wettable powders and emulsified concentrates.


Dosage recommendations are given in a general range. The specific dosage should be determined based on your environmental and other physical conditions. Always test the particular conditions and increase the dosage of SINKER until the desired action is obtained.

Aquatic injection (for sinking and confinement of pesticide)

- For home and garden sprayers, use approximately 1 tablespoon of SINKER per 5 gallons of spray solution.

DOSAGE: fluid ounces per 100 gallons of spray solution

Gallon or less: gallons per 100 gallons of water or pesticide solution
