Cellulosic filtration control polymer
The PLATINUM PAC cellulosic filtration control polymer is a readily dispersable water-soluble polymer. It is effective in low concentrations, with the normal fluid-loss treatment ranging from 0.25 to 1 lbm/bbl [0.71 to 2.85 kg/m3]. This filtration control polymer is applicable in all water-based muds, ranging from low-solids nondispersed polymer systems to high-density dispersed systems. The PLATINUM PAC polymer is used as a filtrate reducer and borehole stabilizer in water-based drilling applications.
This polymer, which is stable to approximately 300 degF [149 degC], is effective in systems with total hardness of less than 1,000 mg/L (such as calcium) but can be precipitated in the combined presence of high hardness and high pH.
Bioassay information is available upon request. Handle the PLATINUM PAC polymer as an industrial chemical, wear protective equipment, and observe the precautions described in the safety data sheet (SDS).
The PLATINUM PAC filtration control polymer is packaged in 2-lbm [0.91-kg] bottles, 25 per case; 25-lbm [11.3-kg] net product in 5-galUS [18.9-L] buckets; or 50-lbm [22.7-kg] bags. Store the polymer in cool, dry conditions.
