X-Air™ P

Cement Powder Antifoam

 

DESCRIPTION

In cementing, foam created during mixing can cause pump cavitation and decrease cement density, consequently impacting the strength of the cement.

 

Hexion’s X-Air™ P cement powder antifoam is a dry powder designed to de-aerate and control foam in cement systems, leading to better density control for a more accurately mixed slurry. The system utilizes a unique chemistry that is effective in a wide variety of cement formulations containing additives such as naphthalene sulfonate, sodium chloride, and fluid loss additives.
