Description

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.
Applications/Functions

The use of QUIK-GEL viscosifier promotes or assists the following:  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
Advantages

 NSF/ANSI 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
