GIMDRILL a high quality sodium activated bentonite designed to meet the requirements of dr ill ing & civil engineering applications, especially for oil well drilling. GIMDRILL Bentonite is pure high swelling sodium based Bentonite mined and processed in northwest part of Kutch, Gujarat, India. It offers superior performance as per API / OCMA specifications. GIMDRILL contains more than 70 % active smectite clay content. GIMDRILL because of its purity resist Ionic solution and has batter resistance to high and low PH solutions. GIMDRILL Bentonite does not contain any fermentable product and is environmentally acceptable.
