Wetting Agents

Description

Wetting agents (also known as surfactants) are used to lower the surface tension of water, dye & preservative solutions, making absorption of the solution easier & more uniform. Wetting agents are used in both systemic & immersion applications.

They are used at the rate of 0.1% by weight of the solution to which they are being added. This is equivalent to 0.12 fluid ounces of wetting agent (approximately one teaspoon) per gallon of solution or one gram (approximately one milliliter) of wetting agent per liter of solution. We have two wetting agents for the following application.

 

Systemic Applications

(One quart of TW-20 is sufficient for 12 pounds of systemic dye)
