SYNGENTA KARATE ZEON 1,5 WITH TECHNOLOGY LT. 5
Pyrethroid insecticide widely known and appreciated for its characteristics of efficacy and reliability, Karate is available from this year also in the new formulation Karate © with Zeon Technology 1.5 with a reduced concentration of Lambdacialothrin .
With the positive characteristics of the active ingredient Lambda-cyhalothrin, this formulation combines the advantages of the established Zeon technology and use without the need for a license. The Lambdacialotrina
Lambdacialothrin, active by contact and ingestion, is one of the most effective active substances against insects with chewing and stinging-sucking mouthparts: Aphids, Thrips, Lepidoptera, Coleoptera, Bedbugs, Whiteflies, Tentredini.
It quickly penetrates inside the insect's cuticle, inhibits nerve conduction within minutes causing cessation of trophic activity, loss of muscle control, paralysis and therefore the death of the target insect. It is also characterized by a strong repellent action.
The result of an intense research lasting 10 years, Zeon Technology allows to incorporate the lambdacialothrin inside nanocapsules which guarantee a high stability.
With an average diameter of 10 times smaller than conventional encapsulated insecticides and thanks to their thin wall, the nanocapsules quickly release the active substance (killing effect) as soon as the drop dries on the treated surfaces to which they adhere very firmly.
