IntegraCem™ Foam

Versatile Cement Slurry System

IntegraCem Foam is a lightweight or ultra-lightweight cement slurry system typically used when conventional slurries may cause loss of circulation and is generally more cost effective than those produced with glass microsphere and cement blends. This system can be used in formations that may be low-fracture gradient, naturally fractured, highly permeable or vuggy.

With a foam quality (nitrogen volume percent) of 35% or less, the compressive strength of the foamed cement approaches the compressive strength of the base cement.

IntegraCem Foam can also be used to control the influx of formation gas into the wellbore, impede fluid loss to the formation and aid mud displacement. This foamed slurry also has superior thermal insulation properties, making them well-suited for special applications including those encountered in Arctic regions.
