Xanthan Gum is a low-solid viscosifier widely used in drilling, completion and workover fluids. It builds viscosity and gel structure in all water base systems. Drilling fluids containing Xanthan Gum maintain nearly constant viscosity from below freezing to 270℉ static bottom hole temperature, in a pH range of 3 to 12, and the product is non-toxic and is readily biodegradable.

Recommended Handling:
All personnel handling this material must handle it as an industrial chemical, wearing protective equipment and observing the precautions as described in the Safety Data Sheet (SDS).
