Thixotropic cement additives produce intentional gelation of the cement to aid in the placement of the cement. Other than being a great additive for gel strength, they can also assist with repairing holes within pipes, are excellent for gaining rapid compressive strength, and sealing off lost circulation zones. Petrochem proudly offers two excellent oil and gas thixotropic agents that can help with the rheology properties of most name-brand cement.
Petrochem - Thixotropic Cement Powder (P-TTC) is Gypsum cement used solely on its own or in combination with Portland cement can be used for multiple purposes in the oilfield industry including:
When using thixotropic agents for cement, it’s important to take into consideration the following things before using this product with your field workers:
Petrochem - Thixotropic Cement Liquid (P-TTCL) is a liquid additive that enables the cement slurry to be fluid when in motion or being pumped. Here are some important things to know about using this thixotropic agent:

At Petrochem, our oil and gas thixotropic cement additives make it easy to repair or seal various components of the well including the conductor, pipes and curated cement. These additives can also make it easier for pumping operations as it keeps the cement in a liquid form for longer periods of time. The rheological components of cement slurries can be different based on the cement brand you are using and temperature conditions.
