AQUATAIN DROPS is a product in water-soluble capsules (made of vegetable-based material) that contain AQUATAIN AMFTM which “emulates” the use of common larvicide tablets.
AQUATAIN AMFTM is a silicone-based liquid (polydimethylsiloxane – PDMS), easy to apply on the surface of standing and stagnant water; it forms a very thin film on the water surface and covers its entire extension.
The product may be bought freely – without any registration – in Italy, the European Union and other countries.
AQUATAIN AMFTM, in fact, is not considered a biocide for the purposes of Article 3, paragraph 1, letter a) of Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 (Implementing Commission Decision (EU) 2015/655 dated 23 April 2015), as it implements a physical-mechanical action, long-lasting and effective for at least 4 weeks.
There is no possibility of developing any resistance phenomena.
