SlickForce FR Series is a group of polymeric friction and drag reducers designed for utilization in coiled tubing, drilling, and hydraulic fracturing applications. The copolymer emulsion chemistry has a unique dispersion package that enhances its rate of miscibility in water or brine solutions, which provides fast differential pressure reduction. SlickForce FR Series were developed to enhance application efficacy due to system application variances the various applications depending on brine levels, mono-, di-, or multivalent ion levels, as well as levels of solids – both dissolved or suspended. Competitive offerings negate fine tuning polymers, but Force Chem Technologies believes in proper application as it provides increased friction and drag reduction by two to three times improvement. The SlickForce FR Series typically provides an aqueous system with instantaneous friction and drag reduction by over 80% shortly after applying the fast acting compounds. Additionally, the compounds are compatible with other lubricants and chemistries that provide increased rate of penetration or optimum pumping rates.

  •  SlickForce D- 1021 was designed for use in fresh waters and light brines with low levels of monovalent ions.
  • SlickForce D-1100 is the most universal compound as it was designed to handle higher brines containing some mono and divalent ions, but additions of SlickForce D-1023 will enhance performance with high levels of multivalent ions. SlickForce 1100 is by far the most popular and versatile FR in the SlickForce D-Series
  • SlickForce D-1023 was designed for use in the highest brine levels or clear fluids containing extreme concentrations of mono, di, and multivalent ions. Your Force Chem Technologies Sales Engineer will employ the proper compound(s) for optimum results.


Health and Safety

Before handling, storage or use, please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for details. Force Chem Technologies’ 24 Hour Emergency Hotline: (800) 424-9300 (CHEMTREC), USA Force Chem Technologies’ Customer Service Line: (337) 205-2156, 24/7 – 365



Coiled Tubing: Excellent results have been achieved in drill out or well service applications by utilizing 1.0 – 5.0 gallons per 25 barrels of water-based drilling fluid (0.10 – 0.50% by volume). Fracturing; Water-based: Utilize 0.5 – 3.0 gallons per 25 barrels of frac fluid (0.05 – 0.3% by volume). Acidizing: Utilize 0.25 – 2.0 gallons per 25 barrels of acid mixtures (0.025 – 0.2% by volume).
