Drilling Starch HT is a high-quality grade of pre-gelatin starch that is used in water-based mud systems to minimize fluid loss and forming thin filter-cake in wellbore surface in high temperatures (up to 300 Fahrenheit degrees). High Temperature Drilling starch is a non-ionic natural polymer which may be used in low-saline to high-saline waters. High temperature starch is environment-friendly and easily removeable by acids or oxidizers.


  • Cost-effective comparing other filtration agents
  • Forming high quality filter cake on wellbore walls
  • Provides excellent filtration characteristics
  • Compatible with most types of regular water-based muds
  • Compatible with sea water and brackish water
  • Stable up to 300°F
  • Compatible with sodium chloride, potassium chloride and other common salts in industry
  • Environment-friendly
  • Applicable in wide range of pH
  • Minimize filtration damage in reservoir formations


Main function of Drilling Starch HT is lowering filtration properties in water-based muds in order to minimize water loss, formation damage and possibility of unwanted changes in drilling fluids’ parameters in high temperature wells. It can be used in workover and completion operations as well as drilling.
