Processing instructions:

  1. Weigh the water and begin mixing (~ 300 RPM).

  2. While the water is mixing, weigh and sift in MaizeCare™ Style Polymer. [Note: The MaizeCare™ Style Polymer can be cold processed, but heating can be used to speed the rate of dispersion. Cover the vessel to avoid water loss during heating.]

  3. Once the MaizeCare™ Style Polymer is fully dispersed, add the remaining ingredients in the order listed.

  4. Mix well after all the ingredients have been added. [Note: mixing may take 10-20 minutes for the formulation to thicken after the base is added.]
