OARS PS

OARS PS is a soil penetrating surfactant, and is a combination of the university researched, field proven, and patented organic acid redistribution system, OARS, and multi-branched penetrant chemistry. OARS PS controls soil water repellency while providing uniform soil moisture for a longer period of time.

Product Details

  • Provides firm, fast playing surfaces
  • Increases penetration of water
  • Improves water management efficiency
  • Loosens and redistributes hydrophobic soil particles

Application Rates

Apply 13-16 L per hectare every 30 days. After an initial 16 L application, difficult to manage areas will respond best by applying 6-8 L per hectare every 15 days.
For increased surface firmness, apply 20-25 L per hectare every 30 days.

Surfactants

Aqua Aid Europe offers an extensive range of surfactant products for the professional turf industry. These surfactants can be split up into two major categories, state-of-the-art 3-D surfactants and conventional surfactants. The 3-D surfactants are the most advanced surfactants in the market. These surfactants are backed up with various independent research and have field-proven results for numerous of years by the end users. 

The multi-branch regenerating technology is completely different to other technologies currently used in the professional turf market. The difference between the traditional linear co-polymer molecules is that they are much higher in molecular weight and have multiple interactive sites (6 or 8 sites), therefore each branch is a wetting agent by itself. This branching will increase the interaction between the surfactant and the soil, this will cause very consistent moisture levels within the treated surface. The combination of the higher molecule weight and branching will positively affect the biodegradation of the product. As one branch is removed via biodegradation, a new lower molecular weight surface active species is regenerated, this will continue to manage the water in the soil.

This technology is incorporated in all of our 3-D surfactants. This will reduce hydrophobic conditions on a sustainable basis.
Independent research has shown the surfactants are able to reduce water uses of over 30 % while keeping the turf quality at the same quality.
