Causticized Potassium Lignite

CAUSTIZED POTASSIUM LIGNITE manufactured by GDFCL at its manufacturing Facility in Gujarat, India IS one of the most popular and widely used Thinner/Dispersants for the Oilfield Industry. 


CAUSTICIZED POTASSIUM LIGNITE is a specially formulated modified lignite also Known as Causticized Potassium Lignite compound manufactured from high humic acid Lignite compatible with all water base mud systems and developed specially for use in potassium based mud systems.


It may be used for rheology and filtration controls in potassium base mud and for helping maintain a constant pH. It is especially effective at stabilizing the property of mud’s exposed to high temperatures and contaminations.

It is especially effective in high temperature applications and in dispersed systems as a synergistic additive with Lignosulphonates. It can be used in any water base fluid. It is used for thinning and filtration control purpose in water base mud.

COMMON NAMECausticized Potassium Lignite


  • It contributes the potassium ion to the mud systems and improves rheological properties.
  • It reduces formation and reservoir damage by limiting the migration of clay.
  • It Reduces washouts and improves well caliper by base exchange.
  • It helps to control water sensitive shale.
  • It aids in controlling temperature stability of mud by reducing flocculation and gelation.
  • It improves rheological properties of water based system.
