DrisFlex™ Additive

DrisFlex™ Additive is a water-dispersible latex. It is a versatile, total mud conditioner that stabilizes shale formations, inhibits clay hydration and reduces fluid loss. DrisFlex™ Additive provides a thin and slick filter cake. DrisFlex™ Additive can be used in fresh water systems, potassium chloride systems or sodium chloride systems.

DrisFlex™ Additive forms a film around clay particles, drill solids, and on the wellbore. It is advisable to maintain treatment to ensure adequate concentration.
