* Reduces and/or minimizes bit balling
* Improves drilling efficiency by preferentially coating the bottom-hole assembly and drill string
* Minimizes potential for accretion and agglomeration of cuttings
* Easy to mix and readily dispersible
* Effective at low concentrations
* Minimal to no foaming produced during high shear mixing or surface agitation
