Applications/Functions

    The use of QUIK-GEL GOLD viscosifier assists the following:
  • Viscosify freshwater-based drilling fluids
  • Form a low-solids, freshwater drilling fluid for general applications
  • Reduce filtration by forming a thin filter cake with low permeability
  • Improve hole-cleaning capability of drilling fluids
  • Mix with foaming agents to make "gel/foam" drilling fluids for air/foam drilling applications

Advantages

  • NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certified
  • Single-sack product and cost effective
  • Optimized grind size for enhanced mixing and yield
  • Easy to mix and quickly reaches maximum viscosity
  • Yields more than twice as much drilling fluid of the same viscosity as an equal concentration of API grade bentonite
