QUIK MUD® D-50 liquid polymer dispersion is a high solids, partially hydrolyzed polyacrylamide/polyacrylate (PHPA) copolymer used primarily as a viscosifier and borehole stabilizer to prevent reactive shale and clay from swelling and sloughing.

QUIK MUD D-50 liquid polymer dispersion can be used to provide friction reduction, inhibition and lubricity in freshwater, KCl and saltwater based drilling fluids.
