GLO ASPHOTEX 1000 Sulphonated Asphalt




GLO ASPHOTEX K 1000 modified potassium sulphonated asphaltic compound. In potassium environments, it is highly effective because it contributes water soluble potassium into the mud system. Its versatile mud conditioner contributes to the stability of drilling fluids, stabilizes shale, inhibits dispersion of drilled solids, reduces torque and drag, controls high temperature water loss and acts as an alternative to oil usage etc. and aids emulsification of oil.It also Provides K+Ions as required.

Shale control, fluid loss control and improving lubricity of all water systems at high temperature:

COMMON NAME - POTASSIUM SULPHONATED ASPHALT  Shale Stabilizer HTHP Shale Stabilizer   Advantages of Using GLO ASPHOTEX K 1000 by GDFCL:


  • It stabilizes shale formation. 
  • Inhibits dispersion of drilled solids.
  • Controls high temperature water loss.
  • Produces thin and strong wall cake.
  • Forms high emulsion where oil is used.
  • Controls shear strength
  • Reduces the down hole with temperature fluid loss and contributes to corrosion inhibition.
  • Improves lubricity thereby reducing torque and drag
