Notes to Editors
Entostat is an electrostatically charged micro-powder. A leading variant of Entostat is based on a carnauba wax blend that is chemically inert.
This variant of Entostat is sustainably harvested from the Brazilian Carnauba palm, Copernica Martius (Palmae). Other variants may include a range of natural and synthetic waxes and polymers.
Entostat is a non-hygroscopic electrostatic micro-powder that can be produced in a range of sizes and shapes. It can be formulated to microencapsulate synthetic active ingredients offering release retardation or to support biological active ingredients on its surface by electrostatic attraction.
Entostat readily gains an electrostatic charge, consequently it adheres to a range of surfaces including, grains and seeds, insects & animals, building fabrics.
It therefore has the potential to deliver an active ingredient at a reduced application rate with equivalent or improved efficacy.
Exosect was launched in 2001 to develop proprietary platforms technologies, initially for agriculture.
The company has developed an in-depth knowledge and extensive patent portfolio of the platforms as targeted delivery mechanisms for a range of active ingredients, biological and synthetic.
Today, the technology is enabling our partners across a range of sectors to realise the efficient delivery of their active ingredients, helping them to overcome issues such as pest resistance, regulatory controls and residues within the food chain.
Exosect is focussed on the Agriculture, Public Health and Animal Health sectors.
