CLAY SLAYER provides excellent shale and clay control and greatly reduces bit balling and mud rings by inhibiting and encapsulating produced cuttings. CLAY SLAYER is compatible with all drilling fluids as well as bentonite, synthetic polymers and biopolymers.
CORE X is a concentrated biodegradable, environmentally friendly oil specifically developed as an extreme pressure lubricant for diamond drilling. When mixed into the makeup water CORE X is designed to instantly disperse and become a micro-emulsion, reducing drill string torque, increased penetration, and significantly extend bit life.
DD 5000 is a high performance lubricant designed to work in all water types particularly where poor quality water is a factor. The lubricant is the top performing biodegradable oil on the market and can tolerate highly contaminated water conditions such as high salt content, high pH, high acidity, and water with extremely high levels of calcium and magnesium hardness.
DEGREASER is a concentrated biodegradable solvent free degreaser. This multipurpose degreaser is built to combat even the toughest grease and grime, leaving no residue after cleaning. The unique formula developed with the latest high performance biodegradable emulsifiers is tough enough to use to degrease engine bays and remove heavy dirt and grime from floors.
ENVIRO VIS is a cellulose-based natural polymer drilling fluid system that promotes borehole stability, exhibits excellent hole cleaning and cuttings suspension. ENVIRO VIS is easily broken down with hypochlorite oxidizing agents or enzyme breakers.
EZY WATER is a water softening agent similar to but much more effective than Soda Ash. Many drilling fluid products are susceptible to water contamination such as hardness, high salinity, and low pH conditions often found in mine water and bore water. EZY WATER allows these products to perform more effectively in poor quality water.
FLOC BLOCKS is a flocculant additive in a slowly dissolving solid form designed to settle very fine to colloidal materials and low gravity solid particles from drilling fluids. FLOC BLOCKS neutralize the surface charges on the suspended particles causing them to aggregate and stick together and allowing them to settle out of the drilling fluid.
FLOC X is a general purpose cationic liquid flocculant additive designed to settle very fine to colloidal materials and low gravity solid particles from drilling fluids. FLOC X neutralizes the surface charges on the suspended particles causing them to aggregate and stick together and allowing them to settle out of the drilling fluid.
Foam X SW
High Performance Drilling Foam for Hyper Saline Water. FOAM X SW is a biodegradable foaming agent that can foam in brackish, salt water, brines and extremely poor water quality conditions. FOAM X SW is completely biodegradable and will not contaminate streams or ground water.
Gel X SW
GEL X SW is a proprietary blended bentonite designed at as single sack product specifically engineered for use with salt or hyper saline water. GEL X SW provides viscosity and filtration control which can eliminate the need to add Trol or PHPA polymers to the mud system in all water types.
Gel X Ultra
GEL X ULTRA is a proprietary blended bentonite designed at as single sack product specifically engineered for diamond drilling. GEL X ULTRA provides viscosity and filtration control which can eliminate the need to add Trol or PHPA polymers to the mud system.
Geo Bond 2.0
GEO BOND 2.0 is a revolutionary polymer system designed to maximise core recovery and performance in diamond drilling operations. GEO BOND 2.0 stabilizes unconsolidated formations and protects the core from wash out by forming a polymeric lattice over the drilled surfaces. It coats the surface of the sample as it is being drilled with a protective polymer web and builds a tough and impermeable wall cake that is far superior to using bentonite. GEO BOND 2.0 helps to preserve the core sample in its natural state offering higher quality resource assessment.
KLA BORE is a revolutionary polymer system designed to maximise performance in drilling operations when dealing with clays. KLA BORE stabilizes and inhibits the formations and protects them by forming a polymeric lattice over the drilled surfaces. It coats the surface of the bore cuttings as it is being drilled with a protective polymer web.
LRG is a high performance diamond drilling liquid grease, formulated for quick and easy application by pouring it down the rods. Where it can grease from the bottom of the hole to the surface. LRG is poured into the rod string when the inner tube is lowered again after core recovery, slowly washing LRG down the inside of the rods and forcing it into the annulus to do its work as rod grease. Used on its own or in conjunction with rod grease and designed to create an extremely low torque environment by adhering to both the formation and the outside of the rods.
PENETREX is a concentrated biodegradable, extreme pressure cutting oil specifically developed as a lubricant for diamond drilling. When mixed into the makeup water PENETREX is designed to instantly disperse and form a micro-emulsion. Its primary function is to increase penetration, reduce drill string torque and significantly extend bit life.
