Microspheres

Microspheres are ceramic hollow microspheres with a shell composition of aluminosilicate and are filled with a gas mixture of CO2 and N2.  Microspheres are used to reduce slurry density to as low as 1,000 kg/m³. These lightweight slurries are typically used in areas with low fracture gradients…

Silica Flour

Silica Flour is powdered sand that inhibits strength retrogression in oil-well cements at elevated temperatures. As a cement extender it prevents cement sedimentation by increasing low shear viscosity. Silica Flour adjusts the phase transformation of cement-water mixture that occurs at high temperature…

Silica Fume (Densified)

Silica Fume (Densified) is a silicon dioxide that has undergone the densification process. Silica Fume (Densified) is a pozzolanic material used to improve the strength of cements. Reacting with the hydration products of portland cement, it forms a calcium silicate hydrate matrix which yields…

Silica Fume (Densified)

Silica Fume (Undensified)

Silica Fume (Undensified) is a by-product of the production of silicon metal. It is a pozzolanic material used to improve the strength of cements. Reacting with the hydration products of portland cement, it forms a calcium silicate hydrate matrix which yields a light weight high compressive…

Silica Fume (Undensified)

Sodium Metasilicate Anydrous (SMS)

SMS are a powder form of anhydrous sodium metasilicate. SMS are normally dry blended and used as an extender in oilwell cements. Light weight slurries can be formulated by blending SMS with the lime present in cement or by the addition of calcium chloride to produce a calcium silicate gel. This…

Sodium Silicate

Sodium Silicate is a multifunctional cement liquid additive that allows custom preparation of the cement slurry at the rig site or can be used to preflush casing and formation. As a cement extender Sodium Silicate helps reduce cement density, prevents segregation of solids, accelerates set…
