Solfac EW 050 is primarily used for residual spray applications, to walls, cracks and crevices, and other surfaces where pests may occur. In addition, Solfac EW 050 can be diluted in water and applied as a fog using thermal and mechanical fogging equipment. The use of water carrier means that the fog is very transparent, but the efficacy is the same as for thick fogs.
Recent work has brought to light another application for Solfac EW 050. The presence of the liquid polymer in the formulation has proved to be a major benefit when the product is used to impregnate mosquito bed nets. The polymer ensures that the active ingredient binds to the net fibres and resists washing. It also reduces irritancy problems encountered with certain net impregnation agents.
