    EZ Mud Plus


    EZ-MUD® PLUS liquid polymer emulsion contains partially hydrolyzed polyacrylamide/polyacrylate (PHPA) copolymer and is used primarily as a viscosifier and borehole stabilizer to prevent reactive shales and clays from swelling and sloughing. EZ-MUD® PLUS polymer emulsion is also added to low-solids drilling fluids to increase lubricity and to improve the carrying capacity of air/foam injection fluids.EZ-MUD® PLUS polymer emulsion is a high molecular weight version of EZ-MUD® polymer emulsion with improved properties.

    Available in 5 gallon jug.


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


    NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certified. Liquid form – mixes easily with minimum shear in fresh water. Efficient shale/clay stabilizer and viscosifier.

    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 CANNOT be mixed with a drilling gel (BORE-GEL® or QUIK-GEL® as it is strictly for clay inhibition.

    The above are generalized concentrations of EZ-MUD® PLUS 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.
