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 BENTONITE PLUG is designed for use as sealant for hole abandonment, casing seals or any vertical seal to prevent water movement up or down a borehole.
AMC BENTONITE PLUG is available in medium (M) (¼” – 3⁄8’’) and coarse (C) (3⁄8” – ¾”) grades.
AMC CLAY DOCTOR is a versatile modified encapsulating polymer used in water based drilling fluid systems to provide stability when encountering reactive clay and shale formations. AMC CLAY DOCTOR’s charge density and molecular weight are uniquely adjusted to maximise encapsulation with only a minimal increase in viscosity.
AMC COREWELL is a sophisticated, multifunctional single sack system created especially for diamond coring and slim-hole drilling activities. AMC COREWELL provides superior core protection and side wall stabilisation. AMC COREWELL helps secure a native state, preserved sample allowing for more reliable core analysis data which ultimately leads to more accurate resource evaluations. AMC COREWELL employs physical mechanisms that entrap unconsolidated soils and cuttings to prevent dispersion.
AMC CR 650 is a high molecular weight, powdered polymer which has been developed to improve core recovery, particularly in clays and shales and highly fractured formations. It provides cuttings encapsulation as well as helping to stabilise the formation. AMC CR 650 forms a protective polymer film on the drill pipe and bit as well as on the walls of the bore hole which helps to provide lubrication when diamond drilling in troublesome formations.
AMC GEL is a modified, high quality grade bentonite formulated to ensure a high quality bentonite mud can be mixed with ease. AMC GEL provides viscosity and gelling to most water based fluids while also contributing to fluid loss control.
AMC GEL XTRA is a modified premium grade Wyoming sodium bentonite formulated to ensure ease of mixing with superior mud making qualities in fresh water. AMC GEL XTRA is designed for use in mineral exploration, water well and directional drilling operations.
AMC MAXI VIS is a mixed-metal oxide (MMO) product that provides an enhanced rheological profile and stability for exceptional hole cleaning and suspension in a package that is easy to design, mix and maintain. AMC MAXI VIS creates a highly shear-thinning fluid with a low plastic viscosity (PV), high Yield Point (YP) and flat gels. AMC MAXI VIS provides excellent solids suspension and easily screens at any flow rate.
AMC ROD GREASE XTRA TACKY is a specially formulated, tenacious, barium-based grease recommended for use on diamond drill rods to reduce vibration and friction between the rod and casing or rock strata. AMC ROD GREASE XTRA TACKY is particularly effective in dry hole drilling, is thermally stable and will perform in a variety of harsh conditions. AMC ROD GREASE XTRA TACKY has superior adhesion characteristics designed to provide exceptional film strength when subjected to extreme down hole pressures.
AMC XAN BORE is a premium quality biopolymer powder designed to provide maximum solids suspension and hole cleaning in vertical and highly deviated wells as well as horizontal directional drilling applications. AMC XAN BORE is a distinctive product, able to produce a thixotropic shear thinning fluid. AMC XAN BORE also acts as a very effective mud filtrate viscosifier.
AMC 117 provides superior shale and clay inhibition in polymer based drilling fluids. AMC 117 reduces the potential for bit balling, torque and drag as well as other clay and shale related issues. All this is delivered by a product that is more environmentally acceptable than the inhibitor typically used, Potassium Chloride.
AMC 1300 is a liquid non-ionic polymer specifically designed to perform in fresh water, saline environments and calcium chloride brines. AMC 1300 will provide viscosity while also providing some lubrication to the drilling fluid resulting in improved hole stability and core recovery in broken, friable formations.
