GLO MICA F/M/C

Description:
GLO MICA manufactured by Global Drilling Fluids and Chemical Limited is essentially naturally Occurring Muscovite Mica flakes seized in Fine Medium and coarse grades essentially used in the Loss Circulation applications during Drilling Operations

Common Name: Mica flakes
GLO MICA manufactured by Global Drilling Fluids and Chemical Limited can be used in water-based and oil based oil-well drillings operations as an additive mud chemical to prevent loss of circulation and seepage.

Mica is specially added to seal-off the lost circulation zones. The platy structure of mica facilitates the overlapping of particles to form a layer or wall and acts as a sealent that bridges the openings. The use of mica helps to seal porous formations and contributes to regain circulation keeping the solids in suspension.
