  • 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 CLAY DOCTOR R™

    AMC CLAY DOCTOR R™ is an encapsulating polymer that stabilizes clays and shales without substantially increasing viscosity. It provides excellent cuttings encapsulation and prevents cuttings from sticking together or dispersing into the mud system.

  • 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.

    AMC ECO GRIP A & B™ is a dual component, low density, rigid, foaming agent specifically designed for plugging applications. AMC ECO GRIP A & B™ is formulated with a Zero ODP¹, Zero GWP², and VOC³ exempt revolutionary blowing agent which is CFC, HCFC and HFC free. AMC ECO GRIP A & B™ provides superior adhesion. It contains a flame retardant additive and is designed for ease of mixing in field applications.

  • AMC HAMMER OIL WITH MOLY™

    AMC HAMMER OIL WITH MOLY™ is a specially blended high quality mineral oil combined with moly-lube additive, molybdenum disulfide, to form a heavy duty percussion tool lubricant supplied in two ISO grades, 320 and 460 centipoises AMC HAMMER OIL WITH MOLY™ was developed to provide enhanced lubricating properties and greater protection on the metal surfaces to reduce wear of heavily loaded parts to prevent seizure.

  • AMC HAMMER OIL™

    AMC HAMMER OIL™ is a specially formulated mineral-oil based heavy duty hammer lubricant supplied in two ISO grades, 320 and 460 centipoises with or without molylube additive – molybdenum disulfide. This product improves the lubrication and wear characteristics of pneumatically powered DTH hammers.

  • AMC HV FOAM SW™

    AMC HV FOAM SW™ is a new generation, highly concentrated foam which have been formulated for use in mineral and water well drilling applications. AMC HV FOAM SW™ is specifically formulated to produce a stable, high density foam in all types of ground water conditions including brackish, highly saline and hard water.

  • AMC HV FOAM™

    AMC HV FOAM™ is a biodegradable, highly concentrated foam which has been formulated for use in mineral and water well drilling applications. AMC HV FOAM™ is formulated to produce a stable high density foam in all types of ground water conditions from brackish to hard and highly saline.

  • AMC SHALEHIB ULTRA™

    AMC SHALEHIB ULTRA™ is an amine based product that provides superior shale and clay inhibition in polymer based drilling fluids. Effective in formations containing shale and reactive clay AMC SHALEHIB ULTRA™ 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 has a minimal chloride content, making it far more environmentally acceptable than potassium chloride, which is typically used for inhibition.

  • AMC SUPERFOAM™

    AMC SUPERFOAM™ is a biodegradable mixture of anionic surfactants which has been formulated for use in the mineral and water well drilling industries.

  • AMC TRIPLE 4™

    AMC TRIPLE 4™ is a highly, concentrated inherently biodegradable phosphate free, solvent free water based multifunctional degreaser. AMC TRIPLE 4™ is ideally suited to remove built-up heavy deposits of grease, oil, grime and dirt from machinery, concrete floors to badly soiled surfaces. AMC TRIPLE 4™ has been designed specifically for the mining and drilling industries and has demonstrated to be a proven alternative to solvent based degreasers.
