PAC-R, modified natural cellulosic polymer, provides filtration control in most water-based drilling fluids.

PAC-R, when added to a QUIK-GEL® slurry, yields a drilling mud system suitable for drilling in sandy formation. PAC-R can be added to vegetable or mineral oil to provide an oil-based fluid suspension, which can be poured into drill string directly. PAC-R is also used in air/gel-foam drilling.
