  • AMC BENTONITE PELLETS R30

    AMC BENTONITE PELLETS R30 are compressed tablets made from highly swelling sodium Bentonite coated with a biodegradable non-sticking film that retards the hydration time and when placed forms a flexible, non-toxic impermeable seal. AMC BENTONITE PELLETS R30 will swell approximately 10 – 15 times their dry state when hydrated with fresh water. AMC BENTONITE PELLETS R30 has the advantage of achieving greater depths due to the unique coating that slows down the hydration process.

  • AMC BORE HOLE STABILISER

    AMC BORE HOLE STABILISER is a multifunctional product formulated specifically for air drilling applications including “Drill & Blast”. It helps prevent a wide range of down-hole problems including poor collaring, hole decay or sidewall instability. AMC BORE HOLE STABILISER also provides a degree of lubrication to the hole and will improve the lifting capacity of the air stream for cuttings transportation. AMC BORE HOLE STABILISER’s unique formulation enables it to penetrate deep into the surrounding strata where it will bond friable, fragmented materials, significantly reducing the need for excess conditioning, expensive redrills or casing.
