Application:

 Used in the Loss Circulation applications during drilling operations.

* RXSOL LCM Mica  products can be used in both oil and water-based drilling muds to prevent loss of circulation.  Our mica can be used in horizontal , directional and veritcal drilling applications where it aides in sealing loss circulation zones with its flakey, flat structure and increases borehold stability.

* Secondary but significant benefits of LCM Mica include improved sample recovery, formation pressure control, cuttings dropped more easily in a surface disposal area, minimization of drilling fluid losses into formations and reduction of wear and corrosion on the drilling equipment.
