POLY-BORE is a free flowing, water-soluble, easy mixing, 100% dry granular polymer. POLY-BORE is a very high molecular weight partially hydrolyzed polyacrylamide (PHPA) polymer. When mixed with fresh water, a small quantity of POLY-BORE provides a clear, solid-free, viscous borehole stabilizing fluid for use in drilled shaft, auger drilling,
horizontal directional boring, trenching excavation and reverse circulation (RC) rotary drilling. POLY-BORE is not designed to be used in conjunction with bentonite based fluids.
