Data Sheet:

QUIK-GEL® DS English

QUIK-GEL viscosifier is an easy-to-mix, finely ground (200-mesh), premium-grade, high-yielding Wyoming sodium bentonite.
QUIK-GEL viscosifier imparts viscosity, fluid loss control and gelling characteristics to freshwater-based drilling fluids.

Applications and Functions

  • Mix with fresh water to form a low-solids drilling fluid for general drilling applications 
  • Viscosify water-based drilling fluids 
  • Reduce filtration by forming a thin filter cake with low permeability 
  • Improve hole-cleaning capability of drilling fluids 
  • Mix with foaming agents to make “gel/foam” drilling fluids for air/foam drilling applications


  • Single-sack product and cost effective 
  • Can provide lubricity for drilling fluids 
  • Can mix easily and quickly reaches maximum viscosity 
  • Can yield more than twice as much mud of the same viscosity as an equal weight of API oilfield grades of bentonite
