    Introducing the AMC MUD AID™ (Automated In-field Diagnosis) The only in-field, remotely monitored drilling fluid testing unit.

  • AMC BACKFILL™

    AMC BACKFILL™ is a mixture of premium bentonite, gypsum and sodium sulphate.

  • AMC BEN XTRA™

    AMC BEN XTRA™ is a premium grade Wyoming sodium bentonite which meets or surpasses the API 13A test specifications for drilling grade bentonite.

  • AMC BEN™

    AMC BEN™ is a high quality sodium bentonite for use in mineral exploration, water well and directional drilling.

  • 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™ has the advantage of achieving greater depths due to the unique coating that slows down the hydration process.

  • AMC BENTONITE PELLETS™

    AMC BENTONITE PELLETS™ are a highly compressed pellet made from premium sodium bentonite. AMC BENTONITE PELLETS™ has the advantage of achieving greater depths due to the highly compressive nature of the pellet.

  • AMC BENTONITE PLUG™

    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 BIO VIS XTRA™

    AMC BIO VIS XTRA™ is a premium grade, high viscosity, blend of natural polymers specifically formulated for mixing a low solids drilling fluid for use in a water well. AMC BIO VIS XTRA™ is a non-toxic free flowing powder that is biodegradable.

  • 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™ has a unique formulation which 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.

  • AMC CIVIL GEL™

    AMC CIVIL GEL™ is a highly absorbent, naturally occurring material consisting of both montmorillonite and smecite that exerts well-balanced rheological properties necessary for many civil engineering and construction applications.

  • AMC CIVIL MUD XTRA™

    AMC CIVIL MUD XTRA™ is a specialised, high performance, highly water soluble cross-linked synthetic polymer exclusively developed for the construction and civil engineering industries. Used correctly and in ideal ground conditions AMC CIVIL MUD XTRA™ will produce a clear viscous fluid suitable for uses in trenching, bore pile construction and medium to large diameter auger drilling. It will improve borehole and excavation stability while also preventing clay and shale sloughing and excess build up of drilled solids.

  • AMC CLAY DOCTOR™

    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.
