American Gilsonite Company Offers New G-Bond Cementing Additive for Improved Mixability at Higher Concentrations

April 12, 2016

American Gilsonite Company now offers Gilsonite® G-Bond to deliver even more performance in formulations with higher concentrations.

Mixes easily without foaming – saves time, space and money
Gilsonite® G-Bond is traditional cementing grade Gilsonite® uintaite with a surfactant coating. It is free-flowing and easily disperses in water for rapid wellsite mixing – even at high concentrations. Its unique characteristics eliminate the time and expense of adding wetting agents and defoamers, as well as the time, space and cost of using a batch mixer.

Now you can further improve the physical and chemical properties of your slurry and set cement by using higher concentrations of Gilsonite®.

  • Enhance cement bonding
  • Prevent sustained casing pressure
  • Improve zonal isolation
  • Eliminate need for blenders or batch mixers onsite
  • Prevent pump cavitation
  • Eliminate need for wetting and defoaming agents

Instantly enhance cement properties without changing your formulation 
With its superior hydrophilic characteristics, Gilsonite® G-Bond readily mixes at concentrations approaching 30% or even 40% without requiring any additional changes to the slurry formulation. It is ultra-lightweight, highly dispersible and can be mixed on the fly without requiring any blenders or batch mixers.
