Suspension Concentrate (SC)
Suspension concentrate (SC) formulations are a solid active ingredient dispersed in water.
SCs have grown in popularity due to benefits such as absence of dust, ease of use and effectiveness when compared to formulation types such as emulsifiable concentrate (EC) and wettable powder (WP) formulations. To formulate a stable SC, the active ingredient must remain insoluble under all temperature conditions.
In comparison to OD formulations, where the continuous oil phase acts as an adjuvant, SC formulations can be considered less efficacious due to the continuous phase being water. To enhance the bioavailability of the active ingredient, adjuvants can be incorporated in SC formulations.

The use of polymeric dispersants is highly recommended due to their higher molecular weight, large repulsive barrier and many anchoring groups per molecule. This enables highly loaded, stable suspension concentrates to be formulated. We have a range of dispersants each with a specific area of high performance.

If an SC is not properly structured, the formulation can breakdown resulting in solid particles settling to the bottom of the formulation. This leads to reduced shelf life stability and poor performance in the field. The inclusion of a rheology modifier helps overcome this issue by increasing the viscosity of the formulation, providing improved stability.
It is important to include a wetting agent as during the milling process fresh surfaces are generated which are generally of non-polar nature and will cluster together rapidly. This could lead to increased viscosity and even mill blockage. Including a wetting agent overcomes this as it replaces air and prevents agglomeration, allowing dispersants to perform. Wetting agents can also provide some dispersion.
