    AMC EZYCORE™ is vegetable based oil which was developed specifically for the mineral exploration industry. Its extreme pressure lubrication properties were designed for the operating parameters at the face of a bit giving improved penetration rates and extended bit life.


    AMC FILTREX™ is a high molecular weight polymer emulsion. When added to a water-based drilling fluid, it reduces the rate at which drilling fluid pressure invades the borehole wall during drilling. AMC FILTREX™ can also be used when drilling into reactive clays and shales, reducing pore pressure transmission and improving filtrate control. AMC FILTREX™ is effective in brittle, water-sensitive formations.


    AMC FLOC BLOCKS™ are an anionic flocculant in the form of a solid block which has been specially designed to slowly dissolve in water flows and to flocculate drill solids and promote them settling in the surface pits.


    AMC FLOC DD™ is a specially formulated flocculant designed specifically to promote settlement of fine to colloidal sized drill cuttings in non-dispersed, polymer and low-solids water based drilling fluid systems. The cationic charge found in AMC FLOC DD™ neutralises the surface charges and also attaches to particles causing them to aggregate and form flocs, the flocs then settle quickly when entering the surface pits.

  • AMC FS 2000™

    AMC FS 2000™ is a rapidly yielding, high molecular weight polymer in liquid form that provides viscosity without the problems associated with mixing powdered polymers. AMC FS 2000™ will help improve core recovery, particularly in clays and shales and highly fractured formations. It provides cuttings encapsulation as well as helping to stabilise the formation.


    AMC GEL XTRA™ is a modified premium grade Wyoming sodium bentonite formulated to ensure ease of mixing with superior mud making qualities in fresh water. AMC GEL XTRA™ is designed for use in mineral exploration, water well and directional drilling operations.

  • AMC GEL™

    AMC GEL™ is a modified, high quality grade bentonite formulated to ensure a high quality bentonite mud can be mixed with ease. AMC GEL™ provides viscosity and gelling to most water based fluids while also contributing to fluid loss control.


    AMC GLUTE™ is a broad spectrum biocide designed to reduce and prevent bacterial and fungal activity in water based fluids. It is available in three grades; 50, 24 and 9 which have varying handling and transportation classifications.


    AMC GLYCOL (HCP) is a low toxic, versatile, high cloud point additive designed for medium to high salinity water level systems and can be used in wells with moderate formation temperature. It can provide improved well bore stability, lubricity, high temperature filtration control and reduce dilution rates and bit balling. In a nondispersed polymer system, AMC GLYCOL (HCP)™ is most effective when used in conjunction with inhibitive salts such as KCl.


    AMC GLYCOL (LCP) is a versatile, low cloud point glycol, designed specifically for fresh to medium salinity polyglycol systems. The primary function of the glycol is shale inhibition as it inhibits swelling shales and clays by adsorbing onto clay surfaces. It also helps to improve well bore stability, lubricity and high temperature filtration control, in addition to reducing dilution rates and bit balling. While polyglycols can be used as additives in most water based fluids they are most effective when used in combination with salts as part of a non dispersed polymer fluid.


    AMC GORILLA GRIP™ is a specially formulated, tenacious, barium-based grease recommended for use on diamond drill rods to reduce vibration and friction between the rod and casing or rock strata. AMC GORILLA GRIP™ is particularly effective in dry hole drilling, is thermally stable and will perform in a variety of harsh conditions. AMC GORILLA GRIP™ has superior adhesion characteristics designed to provide exceptional film strength when subjected to extreme down hole pressures.


    AMC GRANULATED BENTONITE™ is a specifically processed granular bentonite. It mixes easily in water to form a flexible, permanent seal.
