A powdered viscosifying anionic friction reducer (FR)
It is developed for use in fresh water to high brine base fluids. ArkSlick VFR-5506 hydrates well under high shear and provides immediate and sustained viscosity and friction reduction performance. ArkSlick VFR-5506 demonstrates equivalent viscosity and reduced elasticity when compared to ArkSlick VFR-5501. As a high viscosity friction reducer (HVFR) powder, ArkSlick VFR-5506 combines the proppant carrying capacity of cross-linked gels with the pressure reduction of traditional slick-water treatments into a single versatile product.
