Emulsifiers and Wetting Agents

Our portfolio includes a number of emulsifiers to create an emulsion of two insoluble liquids. We also offer wetting agents that lower the surface tension of a liquid and enable it to spread more quickly and easily.

Other available products are designed specifically for invert-emulsion and water-base drilling fluids for improved operational flexibility.


ACTIMUL RD cold-weather emulsifier

This multifunctional dry emulsifier improves thermal stability and enhances HPHT filtration control.


ONE-MUL liquid emulsifier package

This emulsifier provides excellent emulsion stability, preferential wetting of solids by the continuous phase, filtration control, and temperature stability.


SUREMUL PLUS stabilizing emulsifier

The primary emulsifier in the RHELIANT PLUS organophilic, thermally stable, flat-rheology invert-emulsion drilling fluid system, this emulsifier provides excellent emulsion stability, preferential wetting of solids by the continuous phase, filtration control, and temperature stability.


MEGAMUL multipurpose emulsifier

This emulsifier serves as the basic emulsifier and wetting agent in the MEGADRIL oil-base temperature-stable invert-emulsion drilling fluid system. Secondary benefits include improved thermal stability and HPHT filtration control.

MUL XT high-temperature emulsifier

Effective over a wide range of temperatures, this emulsifier provides excellent emulsion stability, preferential wetting of solids by the continuous phase, filtration control, and overall system stability.


ECOGREEN ester synthetic-base drilling fluid

This drilling fluid achieves good lubricity and inhibition while reducing environmental impact.


EMUL HT HPHT emulsifier

For use in reservoirs up to 390 degF [200 degC], this stabilizer is designed for use in VERSADRIL diesel oil-base and VERSACLEAN mineral oil-base drilling fluid systems.


NOVATEC synthetic drilling fluid system

This system can help operators address pore pressure uncertainty.


OILFAZE sacked oil-base concentrate

A blend of asphalts, surfactants, and organic soaps, this concentrated product provides filtration control and rheological stability over a wide range of temperatures.


NOVAMUL basic emulsifier

Engineered for synthetic-base drilling fluid, this emulsifier enables high-quality filtration and thermal stability.


PARAMUL oil-base drilling fluid emulsifier

This emulsifier provides excellent emulsion stability and preferential solids wetting, filtration control, and temperature stability.


SUREWET RHELIANT system invert-emulsion system surfactant

The primary wetting agent in the RHELIANT PLUS organophilic, thermally stable, flat-rheology invert-emulsion drilling fluid system, this surfactant provides thermal stability and HPHT filtration over a wide temperature range and in the presence of contaminants.


VERSACOAT oil-base mud emulsifier and surfactant

This family of emulsifiers and surfactants provides thermal stability and HPHT filtration control.


VERSAMUL versatile emulsifier package

This product package provides excellent emulsion stability, secondary wetting, viscosity, filtration control, and temperature stability.


VERSATRIM oil-on-cuttings reducing additive

Designed to reduce the amount of oil retained by drill cuttings generated when drilling with an oil‐base fluid, this additive also decreases high-shear-rate viscosities in high-water-content fluid systems.


VERSAWET oil-base mud surfactant

This surfactant is especially effective in systems using difficult-to-wet hematite.
