  • 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 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 COREWELL™

    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™

    AMC CR 650™ is a high molecular weight, powdered polymer which has been developed to improve 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 drilling in troublesome formations. It is ideally suited for use in horizontal directional drilling, water well, mining and tunnelling applications.

  • AMC ROD GREASE XTRA TACKY™

    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 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 XAN BORE™

    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 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 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.

  • AMC DEFOAMER S™

    AMC DEFOAMER S™ is a silicone based all purpose defoamer and anti-foamer for use in water based drilling fluids. It is designed to reduce surface tension and break foam bubbles over a wide variety of conditions.
