Mineral slurry additives are specially designed surfactants that help lower the viscosity of the slurry by lowering the surface tension, improving particle charge interaction, and reducing friction.

Arkema custom develops mineral slurry pumping additives for specific types of ores to improve slurry handling.  We will work closely with you to help test and select the best slurry additive for your slurry pumping operation.


  • Increased slurry throughput                                                                                                                  
  • Reduced slurry pumping energy requirements                                                                                                                  
  • Less wear and tear on pumps and pipes                                                                                                                  
  • Lower water usage
