We produce a wide range of high performance biodegradable Air (pneumatic) drilling fluids for the up stream drilling in the fracking industry maximizing drilling efficiency and extending equipment life.   Air Foam and De-Foam agents and rock drilling fluids optimized for DTH Hammers with anti-wear, temperature stability, superior metal adhesion and exceptional extreme pressure performance built in. Formulated with high viscosity, renewable base oils and additives, these blends provide protection for the rock drill piston, rifle bar and nut against the heavy shock loads typical of rock drill service.  We have been active vendors for the Marcellus and Utica Shale plays in the Appalachian Basin since early development of the fields.
