Suspension Agent
Product Description

Product Data Sheet

SUSPENTONE™ suspension agent provides increased suspension of weighting agents and drill solids in invert emulsion fluids without a significant contribution to plastic viscosity. SUSPENTONE suspension agent is an organophilic clay that is suitable for all conventional invert emulsion fluids in applications up to 400°F (205°C). Compared to GELTONE® viscosifier products, SUSPENTONE suspension agent gives similar suspension properties with lower overall viscosity. • Helps improve suspension qualities of invert emulsions and all-oil drilling fluids • Helps reduce sagging or settling tendencies in deviated or high-angle wellbores • Condition oil muds for storage
