Demand CS features iCAP™ technology, a formulation technology developed by Syngenta. With multiple-sized microcaps and unique capsule structure, iCAP technology provides excellent protection of the active ingredient from harsh conditions that could degrade its effectiveness, such as UV rays and pH extremes. This sets iCAP technology apart from any other microcapsule formulation on the market.
At recommended use rates, more than 10,000 capsules can cover one square inch of a surface treated with Demand CS.
Smaller microcaps release the active ingredient quickly for immediate control, while larger microcaps remain intact and release the active ingredient later. When an insect comes into direct contact with Demand CS, the active ingredient is released from the microcaps so it can be transferred to an insect’s cuticle or, in some cases, ingested by the insect.
