TACKLE liquid polymer is a low-molecular-weight, anionic thinner designed to deflocculate a wide range of water-base drilling fluids. This concentrated aqueous product has proven itself in applications from the surface to total depth.
While it is frequently used as a shallow-hole thinner to knock the “fluff” out of spud mud, it also maintains effective performance in more complex systems. This synthetic additive has a high temperature limit and is not subject to bacterial degradation.
TACKLE liquid polymer is an effective additive for reducing and stabilizing viscosity in a wide range of systems. It is most effective in freshwater fluids that are low in soluble calcium. TACKLE polymer is used most often in high-temperature applications and in low-solids, non-dispersed, polymer muds such as the Poly-Plus system. Normal treatments range from 0.1 to 2 lb/bbl.
