The ThinFrac family of friction reducers (FR) is water-based and contains gelling agents or polymers that can improve proppant transport capabilities and reduce friction pressure when pumped, resulting in lower hydraulic horsepower requirements. BJ Services offers anionic or cationic polymers and formulations for various water qualities.
