A cement friction reducer designed for both freshwater and very low salinity slurries

with low to moderate temperature ranges. The polymer is specially formulated for hard to

mix cements or for reduced water slurries permitting ease of slurry preparation and

pumping. The polymer helps improve the slurry’s rheological properties, reduce pumping

friction pressures, and allow for turbulent flow to be achieved at much lower pump rates.

VC-FR1 is widely compatible with all standard API cement classes (including but not limited

to A, C, G, and H) and allows for improved slurry viscosity, uniformity and consequently

improved compressive strength development.
