ANTISOL™

Suitable for modifying the flow and filtration properties of water based drilling fluids

ANTISOL™ Polyanionic Cellulose (PAC) Polymers are high purity (>98%) sodium carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) products. ANTISOL™ polymers serve as the industry standard to modify rheology and filtration behavior of water based drilling fluids in well drilling, Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) and geothermal boreholes. The unique set of features of ANTISOL™ polymers simplifies drilling mud composition and limits the need for multiple additives.

Product Features

Acceptable for use in environmentally critical wells.
Compatible with fluids of varying salt content
Compatible with many additives such as bentonite, barite, and chalk

Reduces foaming under shear

Ensures effective dispersion of clay particles
Forms thin and flexible filter cake at the interface
Prevents swelling of shale formations
Protects the drilling fluid against salts encountered in the bore hole
Reduces loss of fluid
Stabilizes
 the bore hole

Suitable for deep (geothermal) drilling

Imparts lubricity, reducing friction at drill bit
Efficient removal of cuttings
Keeps cuttings in suspension when drill pipe stops rotating

Easily adapts to different geological formations
Yields a flexible filter cake at low addition levels
