Agriculture – important market for paraffin specialties 15 July 2019
For over 10 years, Polwax has been manufacturing anti-caking agents for fertilizers, i.e. agents protecting fertilizer granules against sticking and dusting during technological processes, storage and transport.
Harvests began in June in many regions of Poland. It is a consequence of mild winter, long-lasting lack of rainfall and exceptionally hot spring. The National Federation of Cereal Producers assumes that this year the harvest will be 30 percent lower than last year. It would be even worse if it wasn’t for proper fertilization. For over 10 years, Polwax S.A. has been manufacturing anti-caking agents for fertilizers, i.e. agents protecting fertilizer granules against sticking and dusting during technological processes, storage and transport. Thanks to carefully developed recipes, Polwax anti-caking agents impregnate the surface of fertilizer granules, which reduces their susceptibility to mechanical damage and, as a consequence, their dusting. Proper impregnation also extends the period of penetration of active substances into the soil and prevents outwashing of fertilizers by groundwater. Polwax’s offer includes conditioning preparations for the most popular types of fertilizers: Agrowax, Granoma and Flow Wax designed to protect phosphorus fertilizers, Salwax for ammonium nitrate and its derivatives. Granwax for ammonium sulfate completes the offer.
