HIGH pH ENZYME BREAKER
|PDF Product Sheet||PDF MSDS Sheet|
LEB-H™ is a high pH stable enzyme breaker. LEB-H™ is the breaker of choice for fluids having a pH
of 6.0 or higher. Conventional enzyme breakers exhibit maximum enzyme activity at a pH of 5 to 6 and
are less than 50% active at pH 7. In contrast, LEB-H™ has maximum activity at pH 7-8 and greater than
80% activity at pH 10. This makes LEB-H™ ideally suited for the high pH of preserved biopolymer systems
and reactive systems that become alkaline in pH level. LEB-H™ is a freeze-proofed suspension
of active enzymes in carrier liquid.
Effective Up To 140 °F
Functions up to pH 11.0
Convenient Liquid Form
Ideal for breaking Borate Gals
LEB-H™ Physical Properties

APPLICATION and USE RATE
LEB-H™ is designed for use in borate crosslinked fracturing, Zero Valent Iron slurries, either injected or in backfilled trenches.
Rate of break depends upon dose, pH and temperature. The following guidelines are used a general recommendations only and may vary with field conditions.
Hydraulic Fracturing with Borate Gel 0.5 to 1.5 pints per 1000 gallons
Trenches for 24 to 48 hour break 2.5 to 7.5 pints per 1000 gallons
Jet Grouting and Hydraulic Fracturing 7.5 to 60 pints per 1000 gallons
(on the fly addition)
LEB-H™ is a highly concentrated solution and to facilitate handling should always be diluted in fresh water prior to use. Add 1 gallon LEB-H™ to 9 gallons of water.
LEB-H™ must not be blended with any other additive (except water) prior to use.
HANDLING AND STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS
LEB-H™ should be stored in cool, dry location. Shelf-life is typically 1-2 years but can be extended by storing under refrigeration. Keep all containers tightly closed. LEB-H™ is non-toxic and virtually harm-less. It may be irritating if contacted with the eyes. It may irritate the skin of extremely sensitive individuals. Chemical splash goggles and impervious gloves are recommended when handling LEB-4™ . Refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet for more detailed information.
LEB-H™ is packaged in 1 gallon, 5 gallon, and 55 gallon containers.
