Powders

EasyOn

This pelleting blend is easy to use, as incorporated into the blend is a binder which will hold the pellet together after drying. This means that only the addition of water during the pelleting process is required, thus it becomes simpler to maintain a consistent product between batches.

Encrustment of seeds using this blend is also possible, though it may be useful to add additional binder during the build-up. EasyOn can be used in traditional pan and rotary coaters.

EasyPel

This product is ideal for a smoother pellet and more control over the features of the finished pellet. This blend requires the addition of the Seedworx Stix product, and by changing the amount of binder product used the strength and hardness of the finished pellets can be adjusted to suit different applications, such as direct drilling in the field or glasshouse drum seeding.

Colourants

Seedworx Colour

Seedworx colours are water-based pigment dispersions that give strong, long lasting colour to coated seed. They do not fade like most dyes. The colours have been tested to ensure they are not phytotoxic towards seeds at normal use rates.

In order to reduce environmental impact, all Seedworx colours are free of NPE (Nonyl Phenol Ethoxylate). The colours can be used in film coating and pelleting processes, though the colours themselves have no binding or film-forming capacity and should be used with products such as Seedworx Stix to produce a complete coating solution.
