Use: For making suspension in fresh water for water base drilling fluids for oil & gas exploration, primary viscosity and filtration control and suspension agent. It must be pre-hydrated in fresh water (should not have salinity > than 3500 mg/l ).
Handling: It should be kept in dry and shady place to increase its shelf life and should mix through hopper at the rate of 4- 5 minutes per sack to get maximum yield. Avoid breathing dust.
PACKING: 50kg laminated HDPE bags OR 1 MT New Jumbo bag.
