Chemguard fluorosurfactants foam brine, alcohol/water, and acid solutions more efficiently than hydrocarbon surfactants – such as in relieving hydrostatic blockage of gas wells. Stable in harsh environments (including acids, bases, and high temperatures), Chemguard fluorosurfactants are ideal for down-hole applications. Foam generated from Chemguard fluorosurfactants also reduces fluid loss, increases penetration, and improves proppant-carrying and particulate-lifting capabilities. Fluorosurfactants also reduce surface tension of both water-based and non-aqueous systems, reducing blockage of capillaries by trapped water and aiding stimulation fluids in increasing fluid recovery.contact specialty chemicals customer support.
