RG-2401 is a supply side oil industry specific gel utilizing mineralization technology, the gel replaces the corrosion process with a mineral formation onto and into the metal surface which creating a mineral barrier 50-200 angstroms thick; as time passes, the mineral layer on the metal surface increases in thickness.
RG-2401 is a special custom modification of RG-2400 LT specifically designed for oil well casing corrosion problems where moisture and salt residue are present in the annular space. RG-2401 is a non-drying compound which is pumped into the base of the annular space in oil well cavities, filling the entire cavity, to displace and buffer moisture while mineralizing the metal surfaces. Hygiene departments at major oil companies have designated the gel as a benign agent.
RG-2401 prevents corrosion from occurring, and stops existing corrosion from advancing on existing casings, it requires minimal preparation; hot water flushing of the annular space with sufficient water to remove debris, contaminants, and raise the casing temperature. The gel is pumped in to fill the well, it’s molecular weight and hydrophobic properties displace any moisture present migrating it to the surface. Years after installation, water is still rising to the top as the RG penetrates down any gaps which have formed between the inner casing and the concrete.
RG-2401 can also be used for road casing corrosion remediation.
RG-2401 is environmentally benign. Cleans easily with RG-2400 Cleaner.
RG-2400 Cleaner is also available from Polyguard; this cleaner is specifically formulated to clean tools, equipment, pipes, and hands without harmful chemicals.
