Bore Drill

Bore Drill is a multi-functional liquid polymer designed to improve drilling efficiency in both horizontal and vertical drilled holes through its rapid field mixing, viscosity development, and clay and shale inhibition.


  • Performance in fresh water to very heavy brines
  • Shale stabilization
  • Viscosity Modifier
  • Supports fluid loss control
  • Provides Borehole lubrication


Appearance                                           Opaque

Degree of Charge, %                            medium to low

Specific gravity @ 20°C                     1.02 – 1.05

Viscosity, as is, cps                             ~1500

Shelf life, months                                6

Dosage                                                  0.5-2.0 lb/bbl


Designed for use as a drilling fluid polymer for improved viscosity, bit lubrication, and shale stabilization/inhibition. Can be mixed into bentonite slurries for use in vertical or horizontal drilling applications.



  • ½ gallon of Bore Drill will treat 1000 gallons of water

Recommended Fluid Formulation for clay (Per 500 Gal)

  • 2 LBS Soda Ash
  • ¼ Gallon Bore Drill
  • ¼ Gallon Bore Boost


Bore Drill inhibits the swelling of clay. Bore Clean is used as a wetting agent to prevent clay from sticking to the product line and downhole tooling. May need to increase Bore Clean to 4 Qts per 500 gallons if clay is highly reactive (sticky) Add soda ash at a rate of 1 pt/100 gallons to treat water prior to mixing other additives. Soda ash will enhance the yield of your additives.
