    EZ-MUD® GOLD clay and shale stabilizer provides inhibition of clay and shale formations in water-based drilling fluids without substantially increasing viscosity. EZ-MUD GOLD stabilizer, when added to a QUIK-GEL® or BORE-GEL® slurry, yields an inhibitive drilling fluid system while maintaining manageable and effective fluid properties. EZ-MUD® GOLD stabilizer can be mixed easily at minimal shear thereby eliminating the need for liquid emulsions.

    Available in 10 lbs. pail.


    Enhanced rheological properties of a low-solids drilling mud. Clay and shale stabilization to prevent swelling and/or dispersion. Borehole stability in water sensitive formations. Minimized rotational torque and circulating pressure.


    NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certified. Easy dispersion and mixing with minimal shear. Can be used at increased concentrations to gain inhibition without producing excess viscosity. No petroleum distillates present.

    It is recommended that Soda Ash (sodium carbonate) be added to the make-up water prior to the addition of EZ-MUD® GOLD clay and shale stabilizer for reduction of excess calcium and pH adjustment. This product CAN be mixed with BORE-GEL® or QUIK-GEL®. It increases filtrate of the drilling fluid system.

    The above are generalized concentrations of EZ-MUD® GOLD clay and shale stabilizer 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.
