Description: Non treated Bentonite, meets API specifications 13A section 10

Function: Chemically untreated, premium-grade sodium montmorillonite clay, used as primary filter-cake building, filtration-control and suspension agent in water-base mud systems.


adobe_file_w GUM (Download GUM Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Guar Gum, Viscosity & Fluid loss control in low solids mud

Function: Rapid mixing high viscosity polymer for use in freshwater and seawater spud muds.


adobe_file_w XAN (Download XAN Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Primary viscosifying polymer. Xanthan Gum

Function: High molecular weight linear polysaccharide, used to increase viscosity for cutting transport and weight-material suspension for all water-base mud. Provides better rheological profile with elevated low-shear-rate viscosity and highly shear-thinning characteristics.


adobe_file_w XAN-D (Download XAN-D Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Primary viscosifying polymer. Highly dispersible bio polymer. Xanthan Gum

Function: Highly dispersible, high molecular weight linear polysaccharide, used to increase viscosity for cutting transport and weight-material suspension for all water-base mud. Provides better rheological profile with elevated low-shear-rate viscosity and highly shear-thinning characteristics.


adobe_file_w XAN-D-L (Download XAN-D-L Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Liquified xanthan gum, non-clarified

Function: High purity Xanthan Gum biopolymer, suspended in an ultra-clean mineral oil or Glycol used in most types of water-based fluids for rheology modification, improved hole cleaning and solids suspension.


adobe_file_w CLAY (Download CLAY Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Attapulgite clay, meets API specifications 13A section 12

Function: Premium Attapulgite clay, used to provide viscosity and hole cleaning capabilities in drilling fluids with high concentrations of salts.


adobe_file_w HEC (Download HEC Technical Data Sheet)

Description: Hydroxy Ethyl Cellulose polymer

Function: Multi-purpose viscosifying agent for use in freshwater, sea-water and complex brine systems, its viscosifying characteristics are unaffected by common contaminants & dissolved salts.
