Cement Retarders

Al Moghera Has Developed a Range of Cement Retarders Designed to Extends the Thickening Time of the Cement Slurry to Provide Sufficient Time for Placement.

As wellbore temperatures increase, the thickening time of cement is decreased. Retarders are used to extend the time that cement is pumpable, and allow correct placement of the slurry down hole.

CR-101 & CR109 are designed to give economical, reliable retardation of oil well cements in the BHCT range from 120°F (49°C) to 220°F(104°C). As cement itself varies in its response to any retarder, pilot testing of blends is recommended to ensure proper field performance.


  • Retards the cement slurry set time to allow proper placement down hole
  • Effective with all types of Portland cements
  • Does not increase water requirements for the slurries & does not interfere with fluid loss additives
  • Non-toxic and non-hazardous
