GLO ASPHOTEX K 1000 manufactured by GDFCL is modified potassium sulphonated asphaltic compound. In potassium environments, it is highly effective because it contributes water soluble potassium into the mud system. Its versatile mud conditioner contributes to the stability of drilling fluids, stabilizes shale, inhibits dispersion of drilled solids, reduces torque and drag, controls high temperature water loss and acts as an alternative to oil usage etc. and aids emulsification of oil.It also Provides K+Ions as required.



GLO ASPHOTEX K 100 manufactured by GDFCL for Shale control, fluid loss control and improving lubricity of all water systems at high temperature:
