NSF-certified, multi-functional co-polymer for water-based muds


POLY-PLUS is a multi‐functional synthetic co-polymer used as a viscosifier, shale inhibitor, flocculant and lubricant in most water-based drilling fluids.

POLY‐PLUS 2000 water‐free dispersion has excellent freeze/thaw stability and is not subject to phase separation or premature activation inside the pail or drum. POLY‐PLUS 2000 co-polymer provides the same benefits as regular POLY‐PLUS polymer, but at lower concentration.

POLY-PLUS 2000 is certified to the stringent NSF/ANSI Standard 60 environmental specifications and is effective in a variety of roles, including:

  • Viscosity: POLY‐PLUS 2000 co-polymer is a cost‐effective viscosifier in low‐salinity fluids. Its shear‐thinning properties maximize penetration rates at the bit under high shear rates and exhibit excellent hole‐cleaning characteristics under low shear rates. It also allows for easy solids deposition in settling pits.
  • Shale Stabilization/Inhibition: POLY‐PLUS 2000 can be used alone or in conjunction with KCl to stabilize active shales. It protects by encapsulating reactive shales, forming a protective coating on the wellbore and around cuttings.
  • Foam Stabilization: The long‐chain polymer of POLY‐PLUS 2000 additive creates a tighter, stronger foam, which improves the fluid’s cuttings‐carrying capacity.
  • Flow‐line Flocculant: Small concentrations of POLY‐PLUS 2000 copolymer economically flocculate drill solids.
  • Friction Reduction/Lubrication: The shear-thinning properties of POLY‐PLUS 2000 reduce power losses at points of high shear, especially at the drill bit and at the other restrictions such as the pump discharge, drill collars, etc. The polymer structure also helps reduce turbulence, which reduces erosion and the likelihood of washouts in weak formations.
