  • 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 BARITE™

    AMC BARITE™ is a high quality barium sulphate (BaSO4) micronized to meet API 13A specifications and is used to increase mud density in all types of drilling fluid systems, oil or water based.

  • 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 BIOCIDE G™

    AMC BIOCIDE G™ is a low toxicity, broad spectrum biocide designed to reduce and prevent bacterial and fungal activity in water based fluids. AMC BIOCIDE G™ is a more environmentally acceptable alternative to glutaraldehyde and does not cause skin sensitisation and dermatitis that can occur through the handling of glutaraldehyde making it safer to handle.

  • AMC BIODEGRADABLE HAMMER OIL™

    AMC BIODEGRADABLE HAMMER OIL™ is a vegetable oil based hammer lubricant supplied in three grades, 150, 320 and 460 centipoises.

  • 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 BORE SEAL™

    AMC BORE SEAL™ is a cellulose based product that is used to improve borehole stability by improving invasion control, seepage loss and other loss control situations.
    It is available in three grades – (F)ine, (M)edium and (C)oarse. AMC BORE SEAL™ F fibres will matrix within the wall cake to form an impermeable thin skin on the filter bed resulting in minimal fluid invasion into the formation. AMC BORE SEAL™ M & C can be used as loss circulation additives when partial return or seepage loss is encountered.

  • AMC BOS FIX™

    AMC BOS FIX™ is designed specifically to be used in conjunction with the AMC BOS UNIT™ as a preventative maintenance system to minimize borehole torque and fluid losses, while also maximising borehole stabilisation, penetration rates, core recovery and overall productivity.
