Florigel® HY Salt Gel

Florigel® HY Salt Gel

Unlike bentonite and other swelling mineral thickeners, the rheological properties of AMI’s Florigel® HY gel-quality attapulgite product is unaffected by high ionic concentration in the drilling environment.

Florigel® HY attapulgite product meets API specification 13A/ISO 13500.

Stability in Salty or Highly Ionic Environments

A clear advantage over other mineral thickeners is that attapulgite’s special properties allow the makeup water to be not just fresh water but the driller can also use the local environment’s brackish or brine water, water saturated with salt, or even contaminated with gypsum or cement…at any pH level.

Unaffected by Overshearing

Another unique feature of attapulgite is that it is unaffected by over-shearing. Other rheology modifiers fade with prolonged or repeated shear, but Florigel HY performance will remain unchanged.
