Mica

GLO MICA F/M/C

 

Description

GLO MICA is essentially naturally Occuring Muscovite Mica flakes seized in Fine Medium and
coarse grades essentially used in the Loss Circulation applications during Drilling Operations
 
 
Common Name: Mica flakes
 
 
Application
 
MICA FLAKES can be used in water-based and oil based oil-well drillings operations as an
additive mud chemical to prevent loss of circulation and seepage. Mica is specially added to
seal-off the lost circulation zones. The platy structure of mica facilitates the overlapping of
particles to form a layer or wall and acts as a sealent that bridges the openings. The use of
mica helps to seal porous formations and contributes to regain circulation keeping the solids
in suspension.
