POLY-BORE polymer is a free flowing, water-soluble, easy mixing, 100% dry granular polymer.
When mixed with fresh water, a small quantity of POLY-BORE polymer provides a clear, solid-free, viscous borehole stabilizing fluid for use in drilled shaft, auger drilling, horizontal directional boring, trenching excavation and reverse circulation (RC) rotary drilling. POLY-BORE polymer is not designed to be used in conjunction with bentonite-based fluids.

Applications and Functions

  • Build a clay-free boring fluid 
  • Stabilize reactive clay and shale formations 
  • Enhance core recovery in continous wireline coring operations 
  • Provide high cohesiveness to bind excavated sandy soil and gravel 
  • Removal of drilled spoils from augers and increase excavation rate 
  • Maximize load transfer for drilled shaft application


  • NSF/ANSI/CAN Standard 60 certified 
  • Efficient shale/clay stabilizer and viscosifier 
  • Does not require solids control unit to clean the slurry 
  • Helps maintain a stable and gauge borehole 
  • Helps maximize skin friction and ultimate end bearing capacity for a drilled shaft 
  • Non-fermenting  No petroleum distillates involved 
  • Can be broken down chemically with bleach (sodium hypochlorite)
