  • Reduces fluid loss during cementing within API standards
  • Good compatibility with other cement additives
  • Lower cost than other fluid loss additives

Other Oil Field Applications

  • Hydraulic fracturing
  • Soluble oil tools

PROPERTIES

  • Excellent binder
  • Reduces fluid loss
  • Reduces water production in cementing process
  • Compatible with other cement additives

APPLICATIONS

  • Additive for oil well cementing operations
