HIGHLY ACTIVE BENTONITES FOR CONTROLLED RHEOLOGICAL PERFORMANCE
The high proportion of the mineral species montmorillonite provides a unique structure with very high activity. TRUGEL™ enables key drilling functionalities:
- Provides thixotropic behavior to both hold and transport cuttings in suspension, depending on shear conditions.
- Flat, plate-like particle deposition creates an impermeable cake on the walls of the drill hole.
- Stabilizes and maintains the drill hole.
- Maintains rheological performance and limits filtrate loss at high temperatures (400+).
