Oil Field Cementing Applications

Our Selvol™ polyvinyl alcohol resin works ideally as a fluid loss control additive in oil field cementing applications. When mixed with Class H cement powder, water, a dispersant and a defoamer, this nonionic, low viscosity-producing additive prevents fluid from being lost to the formation in intermediate cementing operations. At bottom-hole circulating temperatures of up to 190 degrees Fahrenheit, it is the most common fluid loss control additive in the world.

Moreover, an added benefit of using Selvol™ PVOC in oil field cementing applications is that it does not slow the set time at bottom-hole circulating temperatures.
