Cindy Zhang, senior application scientist at Horn has developed numerous formulas validating the efficacy and easy-to-work-with claims from Nanovetores. We are confident other formulators and chemists will also be impressed with the formulation-friendly characteristics of these actives. We have great expectations for the success of Nanovetores as Horn’s technical sales team introduces the unique technologies to formulation chemists throughout the U.S.”
