Advantages & benefits
The typical applications for these alloys include machined components for downhole completion tools – particularly for the slips on a composite frac plug. Slips made from ND80 or ND43 on a composite frac plug will practically eliminate the ‘no-show’ issues commonly seen during the coiled tubing removal of composite frac plugs after the frac operation is complete.
Composite frac plugs utilizing ND80 or ND43 will capitalize on the strength properties of the alloys and keep the plug anchored in place during and after the pressure pumping operation. And these non-dissolving alloys will mill out much more efficiently and cleanly when compared to slips made from aluminum.
For downhole applications requiring strength, stability, and consistency, SoluMag ND43 and SoluMag ND80 are the best choices for components used in composite frac plugs as well as in other completion equipment for the oil and gas industry.
