Gaylord Chemical’s New AgXalt™ Series – Designed and Tested for use in Regulated Agrichemical Applications
June 20th , 2023
Gaylord Chemical Company is proud to announce the launch of AgXalt™ X-100, a safe yet powerful solvent specifically designed and tested for use in regulated agrichemical applications. AgXalt™ X-100 is the culmination of many years of testing and collaboration with regulators to put a safe and highly effective solvent into the hands of ag formulators globally.
In a regulatory climate in which chemical products are evaluated under considerable scrutiny, it is no small task to gain approvals for a new end-use application in agriculture. AgXalt™ X-100’s recent EPA decision regarding its standing under 40 CFR § 180.920 is a true testament to its safety profile and its performance has been clearly demonstrated.
Gaylord develops products that are optimized to meet the needs of highly specialized end-use applications with considerable performance and regulatory requirements and AgXalt™ X-100 is no exception. This product has a safety, regulatory, and performance profile that is unmatched by any solvent in the industry. Importantly, Gaylord has made considerable investments to ensure reliable domestic supply of AgXalt™ X-100 in order to support its large-scale use in Ag. In addition to 100% domestic production, Gaylord is proud to be backward integrated and 100% US sourced for every single raw material used to make AgXalt™ X-100.
This is a proud moment for Gaylord Chemical! We look forward to helping our customers innovate for the future.
