ClayStar 2020

ClayStar 2020 is a high-molecular-weight, anionic liquid polymer designed to provide cuttings encapsulation and shale stabilization. ClayStar 2020 minimizes swelling and disintegration of clays.

It reduces the sticking of clays on the BHA and bit balling and has an excellent ability to reduce torque and drag. The product acts as viscosifier, friction reducer and flocculant.

ClayStar 2020 can be used as single drilling fluid in many soil conditions



  • Geotechnical drilling
  • Geothermal drilling
  • Exploration drilling


  • Encapsulates cohesive soils
  • Reduces swelling
  • Reduces torque
  • Drilling progress significantly increased
  • Cuttings and the borehole wall are prevented from absorbing water
  • Reduces adhesion and friction on drilling tools
