KPAM is a copolymer of partially polyacrylamide/polyacrylate potassium, white or yellowish powder, used as viscosifier/shale inhibitor in most of water based muds.
Potassium Polyacrylamide KPAM is a copolymer of partially polyacrylamide/polyacrylate potassium, white or yellowish powder, used as viscosifier/shale inhibitor in most of water based muds. It is also added to low-solids drilling fluids to increase lubricity, fluid viscosity, and to improve carrying capacity of drilling fluids. KPAM is better than traditional PHPA.

KPAM is compatible with most of mud chemicals, used in the same proportion of polymer non-dispersible mud systems and decentralized mud systems. It has excellent performance in freshwater mud and saturated brine mud.
Increases mud viscosity
Powerful shale inhibitor
Stabilizes borehole, reduces torque, improves quality of mud cake
Be soluble in fresh, brackish and salt water
Stable at temperatures up to 356°F / 180°C
Add KPAM in concentration of 1.0 to 3.0 kg/m³ (0.4 to 1.1 lb/bbl) to any active system. Mix slowly through a jet mixer or sift slowly into the vortex of a high-speed stirrer.
