WinField Introduces Textile Adjuvant for Indoor Use

Supplier News

New Wick adjuvant enhances both the movement and wicking of insecticides into textile fibers, according to manufacturer WinField.

| December 11, 2012

SHOREVIEW, Minn. – New Wick adjuvant from WinField is a nonionic textile spreader and penetrant developed to improve the distribution and effectiveness of pesticides for improved control with indoor and outdoor treatments. 
 
Featuring a new technology that promotes better pesticide absorption and delivers residual control benefits, Wick adjuvant is the first product of its kind labeled for indoor use, the company reports.
 
“Wick gives pest control operators an important new tool for suppressing difficult-to-manage pests,” says Martyn Hafley, sales director, WinField pest control. “Thanks to an advanced formulation, Wick ensures a high level of insect control in textiles without staining, making it an ideal choice for indoor use.”
 
This adjuvant enhances both the movement and wicking of insecticides into textile fibers, with minimal effect on carpet stain guards, the company reports.

Wick adjuvant also increases the efficacy of indoor crack and crevice treatments; however, to avoid creating a hazardous slippery surface, spray solutions containing it must be kept away from traffic or walking areas on non-textile or smooth surfaces.
