WetLock PENETRATOR & RETAIN Soil Treatment
was developed in Australia and is 100% Australian owned and manufactured.
is an innovative system that is environmentally safe and lasts 12 to 24 months after just one application.
is available in both liquid and granular form and covers a large area.
What is it?
WetLock is a two-part system designed to:
1. Assist moisture to penetrate soils and clays
2. Retain moisture and nutrients in the soil
What is the system?
It consists of two products, WetLock PENETRATOR and WetLock RETAIN.
What form does it take?
WetLock is available in three forms:
1. Liquid hose-on applicator
2. Power MicroGranule
3. Liquid concentrate
How does it work?
PENETRATOR unblocks water-repellent soils and clays by forming millions of tiny pathways down
through the soil. This also opens up the soil, allowing it to breathe and re-oxygenate. Soil compaction
is lessened and water and nutrients can penetrate deeply into and beyond the root zone, rather than
running off the surface. This deep penetration also encourages deeper root growth.
RETAIN disperses evenly through the soil strata and forms an ultra-fine molecular structure that
retains moisture and nutrients in a form that is readily available to plant life. A soil profile is rapidly
built which encourages a healthy biomass and sustainable plant growth.
How safe is it?
WetLock is produced using benign technology, an Australian innovation designed to create products
which are safe for the user and the environment.
PENETRATOR uses no surfactants (unlike soil wetters). These detergents can strip out natural soil
ingredients, leading to degraded, unsupportive soils.
RETAIN overcomes the problems of the older-type water crystals that only give either a clump of
water-holding gel, or unevenly dispersed reservoir points through soil that has been mixed with water
crystals. RETAIN is not known to exhibit characteristics of phytotoxicity, unlike the older-type
What is the coverage?
WetLock in granular form is typically applied at the rate of 10 grams per m².
WetLock in liquid form is typically diluted at the rate of 3 ml per litre of water and the mixture typically
applied at the rate of 1 litre per m².
How long will it last?
WetLock is a long-lasting treatment and soil conditioner, unlike soil wetters. Typical effective life is
approximately 12 to 24 months depending on soil type, rainfall etc.
*We at enter recommend the 1 and 2 litre RTU hose-on applicator products as offering the best value for money, and is also the easiest to use.
