American Gilsonite 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.
