Low Viscosity Carboxyl Methyl Cellulose CMC LV
Filtration Control Agent
Product Description
CMC LV is a low viscosity technical grade and high purity grade sodium carboxymethyl cellulose used as primary fluid loss reducer in most water-base drilling fluids. It meets and surpasses ISO 13500, API 13A Section 9 and OCMA DFCP 2 specifications.
  • Cost-effective filtration controller
  • Functions over wide pH range
  • Nontoxic (refined forms are used as food additives, E466)
  • Effective in low concentrations
  • Fermentation resistant
Effective filtration controller for aqueous drilling fluids

Has a minimal effect on viscosity and can be used in salt-saturated systems, performing best when chloride concentrations are less than 60 gal (227 L)

Can have a deflocculating effect in seawater systems
