Description

BigFoot Blue Spray Colourant

Active Ingredient: 93 g/L Sulphonated Aromatic Acid Dye

BigFoot Blue Spray Colourant is a blue spray indicator for turf and addition to insecticide, herbicide and fungicide sprays.

Big Foot is a distinctive, temporary spray marker used to identify spray patterns clearly.

Big Foot identifies exactly where you have sprayed, preventing skips and overlaps and helps to pinpoint drift.

Big Foot is compatible with water-soluble pesticides and herbicides and can be used on turf, soil, wood, fibrous materials and other areas.

Big Foot is safe, non-toxic and biodegradable and can be easily washed off most surfaces with soap and water.

Studies have found that colourants used as dye markers allow better targeting of pesticide sprays and could offer the potential to reduce environmental pollution and overall levels of synthetic pesticide use.

Why use a colourant like BigFoot Blue Spray Colourant?
There are many reasons for using a colourant or spray indicator dye.  The most obvious is the opportunity to increase effectiveness by identifying clogged nozzles on a spray boom; if a nozzle is partially or completely clogged, it alters the amount and distribution of the product.  In most scenarios, this means a reduction in output.  When the spray pattern is distorted, the proper volume may be applied, but in a larger or smaller area than desired.  By using a colourant, it’s easy to see areas that are left unmarked (but are supposed to be), are partially marked or marked with a lighter colour, thus raising a red flag that your sprayer is not operating correctly.

After defective or worn spray nozzles have been identified, replace them.  Once the new ones are in place, perform a simple spray check on the spray rig, backpack or hand-held sprayer using collection devices to measure the output of each nozzle.  Without question, the result will be an increase in performance that will create significant cost savings. In addition to the cost savings for product efficiency, retreatments or callbacks will be minimized through more accurate delivery with the first application.

BigFoot Blue Spray Colourant Pack Sizes:  1L, 5L & 20L

    The best practice for handling any pesticide, including marker dyes, is not to allow any chemical, containers or spray to get into drains, sewers, ponds or streams, regardless of the amount. For clarification on the chemical quantity that constitutes an environmental issue, we recommend contacting the relevant authority, such as the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) or a similar body.

    BigFoot Blue Spray Colourant is a marker used to identify spray patterns clearly when using pesticides.  We do not recommend using it in the swimming pool as it may stain and permanently mark the swimming pool.  BigFoot Blue may also irritate the eyes and skin, and it is advised to avoid contact with eyes and skin.
