Polymer Argipol

Argipol is a drilling fluid additive, the liquid blend of anionic polymers. An addition of the Argipol to the water based drilling mud is resulting in :

  • increase of viscosity,
  • enhance of lubrication properties,
  • friction reducing
  • inhibition of clay swelling and sloughing,
  • improvement of recovery of cores, especially in unconsolidated formations.

The product is completely soluble and it is very easy to mix with water without any additional equipments. Argipol is a multifunctional product and it can be used as:

  1. Bentonite Fluid Additive for Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD),
  2. Basic component of water based drilling muds used for coring operations ,
  3. Basic component of drilling fluids for water wells due to relatively short development times,
  4. Lubricant for soil engineering works due to a strong adhesion to steel surfaces.


Argipol is not toxic and it easy dissolve in water. Product does not loss its properites in winter conditions when temperatures are minus. Argipol is biodegradable, a time of the natural degradation is 2-3 weeks.

The product is stable in normal conditions at room temperature. A shelf live is at least 18 months.

Use of Argipol for drilling operations has been approved by the Polish Hygienic Institute.


Typical dosages of Argipol as the drilling additive is 1 – 3 litres per 1 m3 and as the lubricant for steel pipes is 40-50 litres per 1 m3.
