PRODUCT NAME

PAL GELM*

Description Sodium Bentonite, meets API specifications 13A section 9
Function Premium-grade sodium montmorillonite clay, used as primary filter-cake building, filtration-control and suspension agent in water-base mud systems.

PAL GEL SUPREMEM*

Description Non treated Bentonite, meets API specifications 13A section 10
Function Chemically untreated, premium-grade sodium montmorillonite clay, used as primary filter-cake building, filtration-control and suspension agent in water-base mud systems.

PAL GUMS*

Description Gaur Gum, Viscosity & Fluid loss control in low solids mud
Function Rapid mixing high viscosity polymer for use in freshwater and seawater spud muds.

PAL XANS*

Description Primary viscosifying polymer. Xanthan Gum
Function High molecular weight linear polysaccharide, used to increase viscosity for cutting transport and weight-material suspension for all water-base mud. Provides better rheological profile with elevated low-shear-rate viscosity and highly shear-thinning characteristics.

PAL XAN DS*

Description Primary viscosifying polymer. Highly dispersible bio polymer. Xanthan Gum
Function Highly dispersible, high molecular weight linear polysaccharide, used to increase viscosity for cutting transport and weight-material suspension for all water-base mud. Provides better rheological profile with elevated low-shear-rate viscosity and highly shear-thinning characteristics.

PAL XAN D LM*

Description Liquefied xanthan gum, non-clarified
Function High purity Xanthan Gum biopolymer, suspended in an ultra-clean mineral oil or Glycol used in most types of water-based fluids for rheology modification, improved hole cleaning and solids suspension.

PAL CLAYS*

Description Attapulgite clay, meets API specifications 13A section 12
Function Premium Attapulgite clay, used to provide viscosity and hole cleaning capabilities in drilling fluids with high concentrations of salts.

PAL HECS*

Description Hydroxyethyl Cellulose polymer
Function Multi-purpose viscosifying agent for use in freshwater, sea-water and complex brine systems, its viscosifying characteristics are unaffected by common contaminants & dissolved salts.
