Seed Polymers | polyselect® 500 Shine Series
Germains 145 years of experience in the seed industry has enabled us to develop industry leading seed treatments that are a bespoke solution for customers who wish to treat their seed in house. The 500 Shine seed is one of the coatings available in the polyselect® 500 Series, alongside the Sparkle and Matt finishes. As a seed film-coating polymer the series is designed for seed colouring and the binding of treatment to seed.
The key benefits of using the polyselect® seed polymers are as follows:
• Precise and even distribution of agrochemical treatments
• Carrier of seed-applied plant protection products
• Strong binding agent
• Reduction in dust exposure to comply with ESTA regulations
• High visibility in the field
• Product identification
• Increased shelf life
Comparing 500 Shine Seed Polymers to Other Series
Compared to the 300 Matt Series, also offered by Germains, the 500 Shine Series has a higher opacity meaning it is perfect for coating seeds of a naturally dark colour. The bright colours used for the Shine series allows the seed to obtain a satin, smooth finish. The range of colours available can be seen on both light and dark seed in our 500 Shine Series product portfolio.

Much like the rest of the 500 series products the Shine series is not able to hold large amounts of treatment on to the seed. If this is required then Germains would recommend their 300 or 100 series as these have a greater binding capacity. If this is not suitable and you would like to explore new opportunities, Germains offers a flexible approach to supporting you in order to offer a bespoke solution to satisfy your requirements. All of Germains polyselect® seed polymers have been tested and applied with a variety of coating equipment to ensure they are compatible.
