Description: a gelling agent on water base for formation fracturing liquids. Absence of polymer in the composition implies different mechanism of formation of a structured gel. When VES-FRAC is dissolved, spherical micelles are formed in the water (micelle formation is a typical process for surface-active materials), solution rheology remains unchanged, viscosity does not increase. After an activator is added, the structure of spherical micelles turns into vermiform micelles, which stands for instant formation of a visco-elastic gel.
Application: applied as a gelling agent on water base for formation fracturing liquids. Non-polymer nature of the chemical agent may form a visco-elastic gel.
Recommended discharge: process of preparation of a working solution consists in adding of VES-FRAC chemical agent in concentration of 3–5% into the fresh water и mixing it till full dissolution. Formation of a visco-elastic gel is achieved at the expense of activation upon adding of a 1–3% activator.
