Potassium Polyacrylate (K-PAM)
CAS No.: 25608-12-2
Molecular Formula: (C3H6O2)n.(C3H5KO2)m
K-PAM is a white or light yellow powder. It is co-polymerized by many unsaturated monomers and retards shale hydration and dispersion.
|Appearance||White or light yellow fluid powder|
|Residue on sieve||≤10.0%|
|Sol. in water||27.0-35.0%|
|Intrinsic viscosity, 100ml/g||≥6.0|
|Core linear dilatation slip||≥40.0|
K-PAM is used in oil drilling industry because of its good compatibility with various sludge treatment agents like polyacrylamide. K-PAM can change the rheological characteristic of drilling fluid, thus being suitable for plumb shaft, horizontal well, deep shaft etc.
Package and Storage:
K-PAM is usually kept in a compound or multi-wall bags, with each net weight 25 KG. Customized package can be offered.
K-PAM should be kept in shady, dry and ventilated warehouse. It should be prevented from sun and rain, and positioned in some place away from heat and fire; the recommendation for bag piles is no more than 3 layers.
The expiration period is 12 months. K-PAM should not be utilized unless examined and qualified if out of expiration.
