Partially hydrolyzed polyacrylamide(PHPA) is a polymer for drilling mud additives. It is a high molecular weight polymer that helps in controlling the fluid loss and increases viscosity and reduces friction. It can be used as a flocculant, dispersant, lubricant, blocking agent, well drilling mud raw material or fluid loss additive.
Key Attributes and Benefits:
Can be used in both industrial and oil and gas drilling.
Can be used in both fresh water and brines but requires high temperature.
Applicable in: viscosities, friction reduction, fluid loss control and lubrication.
