DD 955


Multi-Charged Viscosifier and Shale, Clay, Saprolite, Kimberlite, and Talc Stabilizer




DD 955 is a multi-charged liquid viscosifier and formation stabilizer specifically for use in areas plagued with shale and clay instability problems. Due to its ionic charges, DD 955 is absorbed directly onto shales and clays, thereby preventing the water damage that causes loss of core and hole stability. Once absorbed onto the formation the stabilizing effect imparted by DD 955 will remain resistant to any chemical charges in overall mud properties caused by varying geological and drilling conditions. DD 955 effectiveness is enhanced when used with Bio-Cut Plus and Torqueless.




DD 955 can be fed directly into the suction hose, agitated with a mixer tank, paddled into the holding tank, or dripped into the holding tank close to the suction intake. DD 955 can be used in conjunction with all other Matex drilling fluid additives.




For normal drilling, use 1 quart, more or less, of DD 955 per 100 gallons (2.5 liters/1000 liters) of water. Use up to 2 quarts per 100 gallons (5.0 liters/1000 liters) for difficult areas. Due to water composition and drilling conditions, these dosages may vary.




Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep DD 955 away from sparks and open flame and protect from extreme temperatures. Avoid breathing vapors.
