Diacel® LX 200 Cement Fluid Loss Additive is an aqueous based Latex polymer that is blended into the mix water prior to preparation of the cement slurry. Diacel® LX 200 Cement Fluid Loss Additive has a mild-retarding effect when used alone at BHCT < 125°F. Depending on the cement type and the thickening time desired, Diacel® LX 200 Cement Fluid Loss Additive may require the use of an accelerator at low temperatures or at low densities when mixed with fresh water. The recommended accelerator is sodium silicate.
The fluid loss control performance of Diacel® LX 200 Cement Fluid Loss Additive is improved when used in conjunction with dispersants and most retarders. The use of dispersant alone is sufficient to provide retardation up to about 150°F BHCT. Typically, the addition of a retarder is required above 150°F.
