Microsand™ Cement Additive
Microsand™ cement additive is a high-purity crystalline silica ground to a uniform particle-size distribution of 5 microns. It was developed for use with Matrix™ and Micro Matrix® cements. Microsand additive can help prevent compressive-strength retrogression in high-temperature applications. It can also help cement slurry penetrate previously inaccessible areas. Microsand cement additive is incompatible with hydrogen fluoride and hydrochloric acid.
Microsand additive provides the following benefits:
- Helps control settling and gelation.
- Can allow penetration into the formation matrix.
