Cases of invasion of core-stabilization products into fractures are often seen. This represents a common and often serious problem in the subsequent geological description of slabbed cores. To discriminate between the stabilization product (e.g Lithotarge®) and minerals or trapped mud in fractures Kirk Petrophysics have deloped and patented the Lithopink™ stabilization technique, a colored version of Lithotarge®.Lithopink™ has been tested for a year to ensure the same high quality stabilization of cores as for the “standard” Lithotarge™. Moreover, an experimental study of the effect of possible fracture propagation due to expanding Lithopink demonstrated that there is no impact on the fracture width and length when Lithopink™ has invaded a fracture.
The Lithopink presents the following advantages:
Because of its unparalleled properties Lithopink can be used for:
