DX-LQ. Xanthan

DX-LQ. Xanthan has been proven to be extremely effective in providing viscosity to thicken drilling mud. When circulation stops the solids still remain suspended in the drilling fluid. The demand for good control of the drilled solids has led to its expanded use in horizontal drilling.
