OCMA Bentonite
Drilling Bentonite
Product Description
OCMA Bentonite is used to increase viscosity and reduce fluid loss in water base drilling fluids. It is a cost-effective means of achieving viscosity, fluid-loss control and filter-cake quality in freshwater and seawater mud.
Application/Function
API Bentontie is used to increase viscosity and reduce fluid loss in water base drilling fluids. It is a cost-effective means of achieving viscosity, fluid-loss control and filter-cake quality in freshwater and seawater mud.
Advantages
  • Meets or exceeds OCMA manufacturing standards
