Lichisys is available as a DUAL RELEASE sheet – both a fast release first stage to kill active Botrytis fungal spores combined with a second stage with a prolonged and controlled, continuous, protective low dose (for up to four months) to prevent dormant spores from germinating – all in one sheet.
Lichisys has an even distribution of SO2 in the litchi carton – ensuring better protection of your fruit.
Packers of the end product are never exposed to high levels of SO2 gas.
The Lichisys sheet need not be removed from the carton 24 to 48 hours before display at the supermarket, but can be removed immediately before going on the shelf.
Lichisys has been designed to emit a constant low emission of sulphur dioxide which results in extended protection with minimal (if any) bleaching.
Lichisys does not emit sudden large bursts of gas if temperatures fluctuate during storage and transportation.
An inert non-woven layer adheres to the underside of the Lichisys sheet to act as a barrier between the fruit and the chemical in the sheet – giving better protection to the litchis.
Lichisys is manufactured in a BRC certified facility, the first sulphur dioxide generating sheet to receive this standard
Using a Lichisys sheet ensures safety, as chemicals cannot spill out of the sheet if it is accidentally damaged.
Lichisys is supplied anywhere in the world through a network of distributors and agents.
Residual levels of sulphite in litchis are always low: <10ppm.
Consult packaging for detailed packing instructions for use.
Batch numbers printed on each sheet ensure traceability of the product.
