QUIK-TROL® LV modified natural cellulosic polymer can provide filtration control in most water-based drilling fluids without substantially increasing viscosity. QUIK-TROL LV modified natural cellulosic polymer when added to a QUIK-GEL® or BORE-GEL® slurry, yields a drilling mud system suitable for drilling in sandy formation. QUIK-TROL LV modified natural cellulosic polymer can be added to vegetable or mineral oil to provide an oil-based fluid suspension, which can be poured into drill string directly.

    The use of QUIK-TROL LV polymer assists or promotes the following:
  • Provide filtration control in fresh or brackish water-based drilling fluids
  • Encapsulate shale to prevent swelling and disintegration
  • Borehole stability in water sensitive formations
  • Decrease rod chatter, rotational torque and circulating pressure
  • Improve hole cleaning and core recovery


  • NSF/ANSI Standard 60 certified
  • Can reduce fluid loss without significantly increasing fluid viscosity
  • Effective in fresh-, brackish-, and salt-water based drilling fluids
  • Effective in small quantities for filtration control
  • Non-fermenting
  • Compatible with other Baroid drilling fluid additives
  • Resistant to harsh environments and contaminants
