Fertilizer Coloration Additives
LignoStar offers coloring agents that are fully compatible with our fertilizer additive products. In combination with LignoStar fertilizer additives, any color can be applied directly into the fertilizer production and blending process. The coloration agents are easy to use and can be added to the dust suppressants and/or the granulation additives. For fertilizer blending systems, the addition rates are rather low with approximately 300ml color in combination with 500ml NODUST Fs100.
LignoStar coloring agents are very user friendly. They do not physically stain the equipment and other aspects of the plant. Also cleaning the machines after application is easy and efficient.
Reasons for coloring fertilizers
• Easy identification of different types of products;
• Efficient way to mask fertilizer formulations;
• An opportunity to market your fertilizers in different colors;
• Improved product appearance;
• Identification of different blends.
LignoStar color solutions give fertilizer blenders and producers a powerful tool to differentiate their fertilizers, highlight the level of quality and influence their appeal. Some fertilizer end-users need different blends depending on which crop is being addressed. However, when fertilizers all look alike, it can be difficult to ensure the appropriate fertilizer is matched with the relevant crop. A solution would be to color a tomato-specific fertilizer red and one designed for leafy vegetables green. Hence, color can be utilized for more than just a visually pleasing afterthought, it can be a valued contribution to a formulation.
