Pesticide and Crop Protection Colorants

Disinfectants, sanitizers, sterilizers, insecticides, fungicides, and rodenticides are all classified as pesticides.

Chromatech has a variety of colorants designed to meet the requirements for pesticide inert ingredients for both food use applications and non-food use applications.

Note: certain plant growth regulators or hormones may also be regulated as “pesticides” as defined by the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).

Contact Chromatech Inc or Chromatech Europe and we will ensure that you receive a colorant that is compatible with your pesticide product application and is compliant with your country’s regulations.
