Divalent brine system secondary viscosifier
Enhances low-shear-rate viscosity.
The DI-TROL additive is a specially processed, high-molecular-weight, branched-chain starch derivative that generates elevated LSRV without the need for additional viscosifiers such as xanthan gum. DI-TROL additive also controls filtrate loss in the DIPRO fluid.
When used in conjunction with a bridging agent such as calcium carbonate, DI-TROL additive provides a thin, pliable, easily removed filter cake. DI-TROL additive should be used in calcium chloride, calcium bromide, zinc bromide, and divalent field brines. DI-TROL additive can also be used to viscosify sodium chloride and sodium bromide brines.

Bioassay information is available upon request. Handle as an industrial chemical, wearing protective equipment and observing the precautions described on the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).
DI-TROL additive is packaged in 25-lbm [11.3-kg] and 50-lbm [22.7-kg] multiwall paper sacks. Store in a dry location away from sources of heat or ignition, and minimize dust.
The storage of breakers containing this agent in any type of metal container should be avoided, especially over a long period of time. Plastic containers should be used for storage.
