Qualibra Wetting Agent
Qualibra is an exciting new concept in wetting agent technology. Qualibra’s new technology allows water to move away from the surface as quickly as possible and distributes the water more evenly at greater depths to allow more efficient use by the roots of turf plants.
Key benefits of Qualibra include
- Maintain a high quality playing surface by ensuring plant health.
- Preserve strong, healthy roots.
- Prevent destructive dry patch from developing in turf.
- Allows for optimal use of irrigation.
Qualibra is a giant leap forward in water management technology, aiding turf managers in constantly creating better quality turf that will enhance the playing experience.
What makes Qualibra a more effective wetting agent?
Qualibra combines a unique and dynamic penetrant to move moisture, with a powerful polymer to hold moisture. Most current wetting agents are either just a penetrant type – with small molecules designed to move water away from the surface quickly, but not hold it – or large molecule block co-polymers, which hold water effectively but are not so effective at moving and distributing it through the root zone.
Qualibra has been designed with the ability to quickly move water away from the surface – to retain firm playing surfaces – then hold moisture deeper and more evenly in the root zone to prevent dry patch forming and invigorate root and plant health.
