High pH Buffer

High pH Buffer is a blend of alkali that resists changes in pH both upwards and downwards. High pH Buffer is designed to control the pH of water based fracturing fluids in the range 8.0 to 10.0.

This pH range is optimal for quick crosslinking of borate/guar systems and also allows quick hydration of dispersible polymers such as xanthan gum and HEC. Typical loading are in the 1.0 to 2.0 L/m³. The product is winterized with ethylene glycol and hence nonflammable.
