Harcros Foamer HS

Harcros Foamer HS is cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, which belongs to the class of amphoteric surfactants and is manufactured with Harcros' patented technology. It is used in a variety of applications, including the formulation of drilling foam bases, foam flooding, and gas well unloading. This product has a low pour point and a high flash point, making it an excellent surfactant choice across a broad range of uses. This product has excellent brine tolerance, and the foams produced tolerate both condensate and high temperatures well. Excellent foam production and half-life are seen in both fresh water and NACE brine. Foam production may be enhanced with the addition of a carefully chosen cosolvent in small quantities.
