FR Starch for Drilling

FR Drilling Starch is a low viscosity agent that reduces filtration and stabilizes the rheology of drilling fluids. The product is compatible with all fresh and salt water based fluids. Thanks to the addition of a biocide, it is resistant to fermentation. Drilling starch meets the requirements of OCMA standard No. DFCP 5 for starch and the requirements of API No. 13a and ISO 13500.


  • reduces the filtration of muds based on fresh and salt water – up to 15% NaCl saturation
  • resistant to high concentrations of Na+, K+, Ca2+ and Mg2+ salts
