SOLTEX is a high molecular weight modified hydrocarbon compound of sodium asphalt sulfonate. It is a black, free-flowing flake material.
SOLTEX is a sodium asphalt sulfonate made water soluble by a unique sulfonation process. It is a versatile, total mud conditioner that stabilizes shale formations, significantly increases lubricity and lowers HTHP filtration volume. SOLTEX enhances filter cake properties in both oil and water based drilling fluids.
Oil solubility %
High Temp/Pressure Loss(MI/30min)%
It stabilizes shale formations by inhibiting disintegration.
Inhibits the dispersion of drilled solids.
Controls high-temperature filtration properties.
Acts as a corrosion inhibitor at high temperature.
Can be a substitute for diesel oil in the mud system.
Reduces torque and drag and prolongs the life of the bit.
Will emulsify diesel oil into the mud system.
Controls water and oil solubility to effect best chemical and physical performance
Minimizes damage to productive formations
Reacts with shale to prevent or stop sloughing and swelling
Significantly increases lubricity; either alone or synergistically with small amounts of oils and synthetics
Extremely temperature stable
Inhibits dispersion of drilled solids
Minimal and easily distinguishable fluorescence
Will not leave oil slick, sheen or rainbow on water at offshore locations
No emulsifiers needed to ensure proper mixing
For high temperature high pressure filtration control: 2.0 to 6.0 ppb.
For shale stabilization: 2.0 to 8.0 ppb.
To reduce torque and drag: 2.0 to 6.0 ppb.
As an emulsifier of diesel oil: 0.8 to 3.0 ppb.
As a substitute for diesel oil: 2.0 to 6.0 ppb.
SOLTEX is available in 55Lbs (25Kg ) or 50lbs (22.7kg) paper sacks, palletized as 40 sacks per pallet.
Other packagings are available on request.
