Description Alcomer 120L OS is a synthetic, high molecular weight,
anionic, acrylamide-based copolymer. Alcomer 120L
OS is supplied as a high activity, water-free dispersion of
polymer in a low-toxicity mineral oil.
Alcomer 120L OS is used in most drilling industries.
Alcomer 120L OS is a truly multi-functional product
used primarily as a viscosifier and as a borehole
stabilizer to prevent clays from swelling. Alcomer 120L
OS is also used for viscosity, shale/clay stabilization,
fluid loss control, bentonite extension, flocculation and
Alcomer 120L OS should be added to Extra High Yield
Bentonite or Tru-Bore slurries to improve hole cleaning
and hole stability. For this application, use a
concentration of 0.5 – 1.5 quarts/100 gal.
Alcomer 120L OS may be used to formulate a clay-free
low solids mud to stabilize water-sensitive formations,
reduce torque and pump pressure, and increase hole
stability. For this application, use a concentration of 1.0-
2.0 quarts/100 gal.
Alcomer 120L OS may be mixed directly into the active
mud system, premixed at higher concentrations prior to
blending into the system or added through the hopper.
Like all PHPA polymers, Alcomer 120L OS is sensitive
to calcium and subject to shear degradation. The mix
water or base bentonite slurry should be pre-treated with
Alcomer 120L OS can be chemically broken down with household liquid bleach
(5% sodium hypochlorite) at a concentration of one gal per 100 gal of Alcomer 120L
OS fluid. Do not use solid calcium hypochlorite or perfumed liquid bleach to break
down Alcomer 120L OS.
