QUIK-GEL GOLD high-yield viscosifier is a selectively mined, premium sodium bentonite designed for water well, minerals exploration and other industrial drilling applications. QUIK-GEL GOLD high-yield viscosifier provides an optimized grind size which results in easy mixing and rapid hydration characteristics. The enhanced viscosity development, filtration properties and resultant fluid stability make QUIK-GEL GOLD high-yield bentonite viscosifier the new benchmark in the industrial drilling applications market.

Applications and Functions

  • Viscosify freshwater-based drilling fluids
  • Form a low-solids, freshwater drilling fluid for general applications
  • Reduce filtration by forming a thin filter cake with low permeability
  • Improve hole-cleaning capability of drilling fluids 
  • Mix with foaming agents to make "gel/foam" drilling fluids for air/foam drilling applications 


  • NSF/ANSI/CAN Standard 60 certified 
  • Single-sack product and cost effective
  • Optimized grind size for enhanced mixing and yield
  • Easy to mix and quickly reaches maximum viscosity
  • Yields more than twice as much drilling fluid of the same viscosity as an equal concentration of API grade bentonite
