Colorants
  • Introduction

    Quality Products for Water Quality
    Colorants are concentrated dyes that are easy to apply by just pouring in the recommended dose. Our colorants add a rich, natural blue to the water to create an aesthetically pleasing appearance. While some companies wrongfully claim their colorants control plant growth, Aquashade® Aquatic Plant Growth Control is EPA registered to control aquatic plant and algae growth. Shading a pond with Aquashade will help to suppress underwater growth when applied early and maintained throughout the growing season. Be sure to comply with all government regulations for use. Always refer to product labels and MSDS for information about specific products. Always read product label prior to use. Please select from the colorant products below for detailed product information and specification labels.

  • Aquashade®

    Aquatic Plant Growth Control is a blend of blue and yellow dyes which shades specific portions of the sunlight spectrum (red-orange and blue-violet) required by underwater aquatic plant and algae growth.  This shading inhibits photosynthesis in young, bottom growth and may prevent development altogether if the color is maintained throughout the early season.  Primarily effective in water deeper than two feet, floating plants such as lilies are unaffected by this product if they have already reached the surface.Use in conjunction with herbicides or algaecides for control of surface algae mats or shallow-water plants.  Not for use in drinking water, no restrictions for animal/livestock drinking, irrigation, swimming or fish consumption when used at label rates.  Active ingredient is 23.63% Acid Blue 9 and 2.39% Acid Yellow 23. Application rate is 0.25 gallon per acre-ft.
