X-Air™ L

Description

Performance Additives

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™ L liquid cement antifoam is designed to prevent air entrainment and control foam in cement systems, improving accuracy of slurry density readings.   The system utilizes a unique chemistry that is more efficient than the competition and applicable in a variety of cement systems.

Key Features and Typical Benefits

  • Decreases foam formation in cement systems
  • Effective in both systems containing polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and surfactants
  • Liquid formulation allows for on-the-fly addition and adjustments
