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.
Mix with fresh water to form a low-solids drilling fluid for general drilling applications. Viscosify water-based drilling fluids. Reduce filtration by forming a thin filter cake with low permeability.
NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certified. Single-sack product and cost effective. Can provide lubricity for drilling fluids. Can mix easily and quickly reaches maximum viscosity.

It is recommended that Soda Ash (sodium carbonate) be added to the make-up water prior to the addition of BORE-GEL® for reduction of excess calcium and pH adjustment.
The above are generalized concentrations of QUIK-GEL® viscosifier to be added to water-based drilling fluids. The ultimate usage concentration will be based on local geology, application and mixing efficiency.
