Oilgel 3000

Product #15850

Oilgel 3000 is a modified bentonite clay, capable of producing high YP/PV ratios and gel strengths in diesel oil, crude oil and mineral oils with or without a polar activator.

Oilgel 3000 is an effective viscosifier in oil and invert emulsion systems. As a viscosifier in oil, Oilgel 3000 eliminates the need for a water or brine phase resulting in a rheological profile closer to a water based polymer system than a typical invert.

In invert emulsion systems, Oilgel 3000 can provide immediate yield point and gel strengths for hole cleaning or barite suspension.
