Argipol® FL-Niko

Argipol® FL-Niko

Argipol® FL-Niko is a synthetic anionic polyelectrolyte which can be used to reduce fluid loss and stabilize fluid rheology in fresh, brackish or brine water-based drilling mud systems. It is a cost effective polymeric drilling mud thinner and deflocculant which has high temperature stability to 4000F(2040C ) and is environmentally benign, non-polluting and not susceptible to bacterial degradation. Argipol® FL-Niko may be used in unweighted or weighted muds. The use of this product is primarily as a fluid loss agent for both API and HTHP filtration control. Rheology control is a secondary property. Calcium levels up to approximately 400 ppm may be tolerated.
