NSF-certified bentonite viscosifier


MAX GEL viscosifier is a premium 220‐bbl yield Wyoming bentonite designed for freshwater drilling and boring applications. MAX GEL comprises special extenders that more than double the viscosity seen in conventional Wyoming bentonite. MAX GEL is certified to the stringent NSF/ANSI Standard 60 environmental specifications.

MAX GEL is a superior and easily mixed Wyoming sodium bentonite engineered to build mud viscosity rapidly and provide superior hole cleaning. MAX GEL also is highly effective in helping control lost circulation and formation sloughing, while promoting hole stability in unconsolidated formations.

The flexible viscosifier is effective in a variety of drilling applications, including:

  • Potable‐water wells
  • Mineral exploration (coring and rotary drilling)
  • Horizontal directional drilling
  • Blast holes
  • Shaft drilling
  • Drilling monitor/observation wells
  • Gel‐foam, air‐drilling applications


  • Yields more quickly than API‐standard bentonite
  • Non‐toxic and proven suitable for use in drilling potable water wells
  • Higher penetration rates than regular bentonite systems due to lower solids content
  • Reduced transportation and storage costs as a result of less product required for treatment
  • Finer grind for rapid mixing
