KemFlow® friction reducers

Kemira KemFlow friction reducers are designed to reduce the pipe friction during hydraulic fracturing in order to lower energy demand. Our high viscosity friction reducers suspend and carry proppant to keep fractures open to improve well production. We provide products for all frac fluid types, from fresh water to high total dissolved solids (TDS) brines, enabling flexibility in water management.

  1. Emulsion friction reducers are a widely adopted technology in the industry due to the simple and effective application. Our emulsion polymer portfolio caters to a wide range of water types, from fresh water to high TDS brines.
