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.
Drilling fluids should have transport abilities, suspension capabilities and gelatin properties. Viscosifiers are the products that give a drilling fluid these basic rheological properties. These properties may be enhanced with other additives to comprise an engineered fluid solution for each unique drilling situation.
