PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

LA-200™ is an amine treated lignite and filtrate control additive for non-aqueous fluids especially invert emulsions. It is compatible with diesel, esters, olefins and mineral oils typically used as drilling fluid base oils.

  • LA-200™ enhances the rheological properties of the mud (YP and gels). It improves the carrying capacity of the solids. It also improves the properties of the mud filtrate.
  • LA-200™ helps to reduce the HTHP filtrate ratio.
  • LA-200™ Stabilizes the oil base muds with temperatures up to 375°F.
