THE RIGHT PRODUCTS TO CONTROL DOWN-HOLE PROBLEMS, REDUCE DRILLING COSTS, AND IMPROVE YOUR PRODUCTIVITY
Mudex has developed the VIS range of polymers designed to handle the extreme conditions of the drilling environment where high shear stress & temperatures, water quality and other contaminants can severely reduce the performance of a polymer.
The VIS range have gone through extensive field and laboratory testing to ensure the highest performance in all types of drilling situations, water types from fresh water to Hyper saline and able to perform across a broad range of contaminates and pH levels.
STARGEL XTRA viscosifier is a premium ultra-fine grind bentonite blended with special extenders, producing a product that will yield more than twice as much viscosity as API Wyoming bentonite. STARGEL XTRA is an easily mixed bentonite for freshwater and extended bentonite systems.
TRUCKWASH is a concentrated multi‐purpose biodegradable, caustic and phosphate free, streak free heavy duty truck wash developed to meet current market expectations focusing on removing oil, grease, coal and road grime from plant and equipment. TRUCKWASH is designed to perform hard water conditions making it compatible with most mine site raw water supplies.
TUBE LUBE is a thickened, natural fatty acid that provides excellent lubrication within the inner core barrel to facilitate entry and removal of the core sample. It can be used effectively in all types of core barrels and is 100 % biodegradable and non-toxic.
UNIVERSAL is a concentrated biodegradable, environmentally friendly oil specifically developed as an extreme pressure diamond drilling lubricant for hard water. UNIVERSAL properties are similar to CORE X that when mixed into the makeup water UNIVERSAL instantly disperses and becomes a micro-emulsion, reducing drill string torque, increasing penetration rates and significantly extending bit life.
Vis Trol RD
VIS TROL RD is a readily dispersible combination of high-quality, water-soluble bio polymers designed to control fluid loss and increase viscosity in water-base muds. Designed to be used where there is limited mixing equipment VIS TROL RD provides immediate viscosity and fluid loss control in both fresh and saline water.
X Frac (DD)
X FRAC (DD) is a convienient, fast acting and extremely cost effective solution in most lost circulation conditions, including fractures, weak channels to underground cross-flows and vugular formations. X FRAC (DD) is formulated specifically for the Diamond Drilling market but may be utilized in any drilling environment to control seepage losses.
X SHEAR is a specially formulated blend of low viscosity polymers and powdered inhibitors used to stabilize water sensitive formations such as shales, mudstones, and aggressive shear zones. This unique blend can be used in diamond and rotary drilling operations in conditions where products such as inhibitive polymers, Potassium Chloride, salt etc are ineffective in preventing formation swelling and maintaining hole stability.
XAN VIS is a biopolymer used for increasing viscosity in water-base systems. Small additions provide viscosity and weight-material suspension for all water-base mud systems. XAN VIS D has the unique ability to produce a fluid that is highly shear-thinning (LSRV).
Xpanda Foam A & B
XPANDA FOAM A & B is a two part liquid component foaming system that produces a rigid polyurethane foam that will expand 30 -35 times it original volume. XPANDA FOAM is a blend of polyols, catalysts and blowing agents and is CFC, HCFC and HFC free, with a zero ODP, GWP and no VOC
XT Rod Grease
XT ROD GREASE is a heavy duty and extremely tacky diamond drill rod grease. Utilizing a specialty thickener, heavy duty base oils, tacky additives and a unique specialty manufacturing process. This results in outstanding thick, strong, and tacky diamond drill rod grease allowing for long lasting rod lubrication. Drilling costs are reduced using XT ROD GREASE because re-greasing intervals are minimized due to the long lasting rod lubrication.
