    Lightweighting Cements with 3M™ Glass Bubbles

    3M™ Glass Bubbles HGS Series are engineered hollow glass spheres specially formulated for a high strength-to-weight ratio, allowing greater survivability under demanding downhole conditions. Lightweight cement slurries made with 3M glass bubbles HGS Series help prevent problems associated with lost circulation such as reduced Top of Cement (TOC) and thus the need for remedial squeeze.

  • Easy to Use

    Unlike nitrogen-foamed cement, cement made with 3M Glass Bubbles HGS Series is more homogeneous, non-compressible and eliminates the need for specialized equipment and personnel.

    Unlike cenospheres, 3M Glass Bubbles HGS Series provide consistency batch-to-batch, location-to-location; greater density reduction capabilities and better performance.

    Use a Little. Get a Lot.

    Use a little. Get a lot. Each grade of HGS has been designed to afford greater density reduction capabilities than other lightweight additives under similar downhole conditions, providing the best balance of strength-to-weight at the lowest possible uage levels. Bottom line: Better performance at the lowest cost.
