Perfect for slurries with low fluid-loss materials
CFR-6 cement friction reducer replaces our CFR-2™ cement additive. The new formulation reduces apparent viscosity and improves the rheological properties of cement slurries.
CFR-6 cement friction reducer is effective in altering the apparent viscosity of slurries that contain low fluid-loss materials (especially HALAD®-9 additive, HALAD-12 additive, and HALAD-22 additive). It is not recommended for use in slurries where the ratio of salt to water (by weight of water) is 18% or greater.
By changing the apparent viscosity of a slurry, CFR-6 cement friction reducer allows operators to mix slurry at a higher density and maintain an optimum pumping rate. Using CFR-6 cement friction reducer can decrease or eliminate the need to add weighting material to a slurry mix.
A cement friction reducer that directly replaces CFR-2 (Blue Label) reducer which helps reduce apparent viscosity, improve rheological properties, improves fluid-loss control to an extent, and slightly retards cement for use in wells above 60°F (15.6°C).
