BB5 is an acidifier-buffer with a built-in pH indicator, recommended to solve three important factors affecting spray-waters: pH, Hardness and Conductivity. BB5 is used with alkaline-sensitive and contact insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, defoliants and foliar feeds.
The single spray-water solution, so practical, it solves five spraying problems simultaneously!
Acidifies alkaline and hard water
BB5 will acidify all alkaline and hard waters, reducing the pH to a level optimal for pesticidal performance and preventing these salts from ‘tying up’ the chemical
Indicates the optimum pH level
A built-in patented pH indicator visually displays when the spray-water has reached the optimum pH level (pH 4.5-5.51)
Buffers the spray-water
The buffering capacity of BB5 enables the spray-water to resist pH changes once the minimum pH level of the water has been reached.
Active both in the spray tank & on the leaf surface
Not only provides the optimal conditions during spraying but also minimizes los of efficacy of the chemical after the spray has been deposited on the leaf surface.
Safe to use and cost effective
BB5 is proven safe to the applicator and to the crop. BB5 is added until colour change is observed, making BB5 cost effective without unnecessary wastage.
