Polyacrylamide Potassium KPAM

Shale Inhibitor / Viscosifier

Product Description

KPAM is a copolymer of partially polyacrylamide/polyacrylate potassium, white or yellowish powder, used as viscosifier/shale inhibitor in most of water based muds. It is also added to low-solids drilling fluids to increase lubricity, fluid viscosity, and to improve carrying capacity of drilling fluids. KPAM is better than traditional PHPA.


KPAM is compatible with most of mud chemicals, used in the same proportion of polymer non-dispersible mud systems and decentralized mud systems. It has excellent performance in freshwater mud and saturated brine mud.
