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.

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.
