Vitax OARS Curative relaunched after legal wrangle

Lingering confusion surrounding OARS Curative product has been dispelled, leading Vitax Amenity to re-launch the product at BTME last week.

Legal proceeding with former distributors Tower Chemicals reached an amicable conclusion that Tower Chemical's ‘correct OARS' product was not and never has been manufactured by Aqua-Aid. Vitax is and always has been sole UK distributor of Aqua-Aid's OARS Curative.

Vitax OARS Curative is an Organic Removal System that, when used in a wetting agent programme, removes the organic waxy coatings that attach to soil particles and cause water to be repelled. The product not only cures dry patch but also gives up to 30 days' surfactant activity.  Only 2 to 3 applications are required per season.
