QUIK-GEL viscosifier is an easy-to-mix, finely ground (200-mesh), premium-grade, high-yielding Wyoming sodium bentonite.
QUIK-GEL viscosifier imparts viscosity, fluid loss control and gelling characteristics to freshwater-based drilling fluids.
- Mix with fresh water to form a low-solids drilling fluid for general drilling applications
- Viscosify water-based drilling fluids
- 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
- NSF/ANSI/CAN Standard 60 certified
- Single-sack product and cost effective
- Can provide lubricity for drilling fluids
- Can mix easily and quickly reaches maximum viscosity
- Can yield more than twice as much mud of the same viscosity as an equal weight of API oilfield grades of bentonite
