A-2 Sodium Metasilicate/A-3L Sodium


Silicate Cement Additives
Baker Hughes uses A-2 sodium metasilicate and A-3L sodium silicate cement additives
as extenders to produce low-slurry densities. These additives help tie up the additional
water used for these slurries. A-2 and A-3L additives also accelerate cements to reduce
waiting-on-cement time and increase early compressive strength development. Applications

A-9 Potassium Chloride (KCl)


Cement Additive
Baker Hughes uses A-9 potassium chloride (KCl) cement additive to minimize formation
damage. KCI is a white, granular material that is normally dry-blended with the cement,
but can also be added to the mix water. It does not require additional water when used in
cement. The amount of potassium chloride needed is based on the weight of water in the Applications

BJ FL-66/BJ FL-66L Fluid Loss Additives

The BJ FL-66 and BJ FL-66L fluid loss additives are designed for a broad range of well
conditions, although they are primarily used where high temperatures and/or high
pressures are encountered. These agents provide superior fluid loss control without
adversely affecting thickening time or early compressive strength development, and Applications
allow a minimal increase in viscosity. „ Primary and remedial cementing
