Aqua-Clear PFD: A concentrated liquid polymer dispersant. Highly effective mud thinner which contains no phosphates. NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certified.

Bio-Bore: A polymer-based system that provides a clay-free, biodegradable drilling fluid in situations where the use of clay-based fluids is restricted.

Diamond Seal: A water-swellable, not water-soluble, 100% crystalline synthetic polymer. Absorbs hundreds of times its weight in water. It is used primarily as a lost circulation material in HDD.

EZ-Mud Plus: A liquid polymer emulsion used as a borehole stabilizing agent to prevent active shale and clay from swelling and sloughing. Can be added to bentonite slurries to improve cuttings carrying capacity and to air foam injection mixtures to upgrade all properties, including foam stability and cuttings carrying capacity.

No-Sag: A free flowing bio-polymer when added to a bentonite based drilling fluid provides increased gel strength, resulting in superior suspension of coarse drill cuttings, sand and gravel. Can be used with fresh or brackish water slurries.

Penetrol: A non-ionic wetting agent designed to counteract the sticking tendencies of clay and reduce or eliminate bit balling. Preferentially coats drill bits, drill string, and reamers to improve drilling efficiency.

Poly-Bore: Soluble fresh water, easy mixing, 100% dry granular polymer that provides a clear solids-free, viscous, clay free, borehole stabilizing fluid for use in all types of trenchless construction applications.

Quik-Trol Gold: Highly-dispersible polyanionic cellulosic (PAC) polymer. Mixes without clumping, even at low shear, and provides exceptional filtration control in bentonite-based fresh water drilling and boring fluids. NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certified

Quik-Trol Gold LV: Highly-dispersible polyanionic cellulosic (PAC) polymer. Mixes without clumping, even at low shear. Provides exceptional filtration control in bentonite-based drilling and boring fluids with little effect on viscosity. NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certified.
