Suspension Concentrates



Suspension of active substances in a fluid intended for dilution with water before use

Ferbi srl
Suspension concentrate or flowables consist of insoluble solid active ingredients finely dispersed in water.
SCs have grown in popularity due to benefits such as absence of dust, ease of use and effectiveness when compared to other formulation types such as emulsifiable concentrate (EC) and wettable powder (WP).
To formulate a stable SC, the active ingredient must remain insoluble under all temperature conditions.
