HELIOPROTECT is produced by selective mining and careful processing of naturally occurring sedimentary calcium- magnesium carbonate mineral. Through micronizing and classification, the obtained product is white with platelet structure and high aspect ratio, making HELIOPROTECT an effective crop protectant. The unique formulation and composition of the product protects trees from intense temperatures and sunlight. After the application, HELIOPROTECT creates a protective layer around leaves and olives that has been proved effectively against olive fruit flies. The very low average particle size results from the nearly total deagglomeration during the grinding and classification process.
