Viscoeleastic Surfactants

Using good analytical methods is key to understanding these interesting fluids.

 

The Park Systems 2019 Material Science Research and AFM Webinar Series continues with Viscoelastic Surfactants and Oilfield Chemicals. Viscoelastic Surfactants, or VES, are becoming increasingly important for new viscosifying media in a variety of industries and commercial applications. The VES for oilfield chemicals is important for improving productivity in challenging formations and wells.
