GELPLEX bentonite is a specially selected, untreated sodium bentonite for use in the DRILPLEX system. It is designed to ensure that DRILPLEX mixed metal oxide (MMO) adsorbs onto the hydrated clay platelets to form a strong, stable complex. It has particular application in drilling high-angle and horizontal wells, lost circulation zones, production reservoirs as a reservoir drill-in fluid (RDF) and for casing milling operations.
