Inrock/drillers supply.

POLY PLUS: A liquid polymer designed to provide cuttings encapsulation, shale stabilization, boost mud viscosity and improve overall mud lubricity. It is a multi-purpose polymer that will improve mud performance and reduce friction. POLY PLUS can be used in mud cleaning systems utilizing makeup waters from fresh to saltwater.

POLY SWELL: A co-polymer that provides excellent results when used as a lost circulation control additive and/or plugging agent. This polymer will expand 200 times its volume in fresh water. This material is environmentally safe and is often used in agricultural applications to retain water. It will plug small and large loss zones.

LIQUID PAC: This drispac polymer that has been proven effective in battling swelling clay and seepage loss. It also helps strengthen the wall-cake and will help prevent caving and sloughing in the hole. Added benefits include improved viscosity and hole-cleaning.

RING FREE: This liquid polymer is a low molecular weight, anionic thinner designed to break down clay swelling, expansion and hydration. It can be used to thin viscous muds, to increase pumpability, or to breakdown problem in-situ clays that are increasing torque and drag. This synthetic additive has a high temperature limit and is not subjected to bacterial degradation.

DUO VIS: DUO VIS xanthan gum is a high molecular weight biopolymer used for increasing rheology in water-based systems. Small quantities provide viscosity and weight material suspension for all water based mud systems. DUO-VIS has the unique ability to produce a fluid that is highly shear thinning while developing a true gel structure.
