Cementing Retarders

Borregaard LignoTech offers a complete line of specialty cement retarders. These products are suitable for retarding the set of cements used to encase newly drilled wells across a broad range of temperatures.

Cementing systems utilise our products’ ability to retard cement, extend pump times, and allow the cement to set at the desired location in the production string.
