CLAY-DRILL is a single sack product designed for HDD applications where sacrificial fluids are the preferred system of choice. CLAY-DRILL polymer-based HDD fluid is designed to provide borehole stabilization, counteract the sticking tendencies of clay and maximize clay/shale inhibition without the need for additional additives. 

Applications and Functions

  • Clay and shale stabilization to reduce swelling and/or disintegration
  • Viscosity development in fresh water drilling fluids 
  • Enhanced lubricity for reduction of rotational torque and drag
  • Reduction of the ability of clay or shale to adhere to bit, reamer and drill string 
  • Development of a “clay-free” drilling fluid


  • NSF/ANSI/CAN Standard 60 certified 
  • Single-sack product, reduces the number of products on-site
