Inorganic lime sulfur was first used in the year 1886 in the United States as a wash to control scale insects, and fumigated with hydrogen cyanide. The product has been widely used in horticulture and rose plantations in admiration of its quick and robust effectiveness in controlling bacterial fungi, molds, mildew, twig border, spider mites, rust and other conditions. In veterinary applications, lime sulfur dips are used for cats, dogs and horses. It is most often used for treatments of external parasites and ringworm (dermatophytosis).
Friction modifier additives market projected to exhibit the CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

Emulsifiers are substances used to combine oil and water substances so as to form emulsion. Emulsifiers are molecules with two different ends: a hydrophilic end - 'water-loving' – forms chemical bond with water instead of oil and a hydrophobic end - 'water-hating' - forms chemical bond with oil instead of water. These are colloids widely used as additives during food product processing. Emulsifiers exhibit multifunctional utility among a wide range of applications ranging from bakery to meat processing. Emulsifiers in food enhance the suspension of oil and water, mainly in margarine, ice cream, salad dressing, etc.
