Tech Brief
Is your wicking technology hurting or
helping your insecticide product design?

What you will learn in this tech brief:

Audience: design engineers, automotive manufacturers

The fragrance delivery of an air care device such as an insecticide or pest control device can be impacted by the material of the wick, which is designed to disseminate liquid into the air. Poor design and material choice can result in product malfunction that contributes to additional resource waste and extra replacement costs. With ceramic wicks, manufacturers risk not only reducing productivity in a manufacturing environment, but also producing a poorly functioning pest control device that clogs or degrades prematurely and is fragile enough that if tampered with, can pose a threat to children.

In this tech brief, discover how pest control products utilizing wicks made from porous polymers offer greater functionality that enable better emanation rates for a controlled and consistent delivery of insecticide as well as provide a safer, more sustainable and cost-effective solution.

What registrants will learn in this tech brief:

  • Understand how wicks function and their role in the overall performance of a pest control device
  • Explore how the use of ceramic wicks can cause pest control devices to malfunction prematurely, reduce productivity in a manufacturing environment and increase the possibility of litigation and additional costs
  • Uncover the strength behind sintered particles and bonded fiber, two forms of porous polymers, that alleviate challenges associated with ceramic wicks while improving performance and reducing risk
