Seed Polymer Overview: Spectrum® 100 Series

seed polymers

When Pelleting or Encrusting Use Spectrum® 100 Polymers

For encrustment work, spectrum® 100 is the polymer of choice and is used extensively in this area. The 100 series is ideal for the application of build-up of solids, such as seed coating and pelleting materials to increase seed weight and improve plantability.

The 100 series is available in a range of standard colors, as well as an uncolored neutral version.

Spectrum® 100 color options

We recommend that the 100 series seed polymers are best used when diluted with water in a 1:1 to 1:3 ratio. The dilution rate is dependent on the specific application and the amount of solid binding capacity required.
