DRISCAL D POLYMER is a synthetic polymer formulated for use in high-temperature and/or high-salinity environments. It is available in a dry powder form and offers several advantages, including its effectiveness at any salinity level, the reduction of differential sticking tendencies, the preservation of cuttings, and the mitigation of abrasion of hematite weighting agents.

    Product Highlights
    • Works well at any salinity
    • Reduces differential sticking tendencies
    • Can be used in harsh environments such as North Dakota and other hardbrines
    • Temperature stable to 475 °F (246 °C)
    • Can improve thermal stability of whole mud system
    • Non-fermenting
    • Helps maintain the integrity of cuttings
    • Reduces abrasion of hematite weighting agents
    • Inhibits shale
    • Increases the effectiveness of solids-control equipment
    • Calcium tolerance in excess of 100,000 ppm
    • Driscal® D Polymer is a high-performance, hostile environment polymer which is cost-effective against other synthetic additives in these challenging fluid environments. Total well cost for interval drilled is usually lower.
