TAU-MOD™ is amorphous / fibrous material is used to impart viscosity and suspension properties to oil-based drilling fluids. TAU-MOD viscosifier yields more readily with shear when fluid temperatures are at least 120°F.
Applications / Functions
Helps viscosify any oil-based drilling fluid
Helps improve hole cleaning during drilling and workover operations
Extends co-polymers in non-aqueous fluids for long-term suspension of weighting agents in packer fluids and casing packs
Helps enhance low shear rheology and gel strengths
TAU-MOD® viscosifier is used to improve fluid stability, weight material suspension and hole cleaning capacity in high performance invert emulsion drilling fluids built using organophilic clay-free technology.
