    EZ-MUD® liquid polymer emulsion contains partially hydrolyzed polyacrylamide/polyacrylate (PHPA) copolymer and is used primarily as a borehole stabilizer to prevent reactive shale and clay from swelling and sloughing. EZ-MUD polymer emulsion is also added to low-solids drilling fluids to increase lubricity, fluid viscosity and to improve carrying capacity of air/foam injection fluids.

    Available in 5 gallon and 1 gallon jug.


    Stabilize reactive shale and clay formations. Improve borehole stability. Enhance slurry rheological properties. Alleviate mud rings, bit balling and booting-off in clay formations.


    NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certified. Mixes easily with minimum shear in fresh water. Helps provide effective clay and shale stabilization with lower viscosity. Helps impart high degree of lubricity.

    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. This product should not be mixed with BORE-GEL®.

    The above are generalized concentrations of EZ-MUD® liquid polymer emulsion to be added to water-based drilling fluids. The ultimate usage concentration will be based on local geology, application and mixing efficiency. In the event that further information is needed, please refer to the Product Data Sheet or contact your local Baroid IDP representative.
