about this product

Salt is crucial for many industries. Its compounds make it one of the most important materials in the chemical industry, since more than 50% of the chemical products depend on it at a stage of their manufacture. It is also used in the manufacturing of thousands of other commodities including glass, paper, rubber, and textiles as well as in water softening systems for industry and domestic use. Furthermore, it is used as a de-icing agent and as most commonly known food ingredient.

Product Applications

In drilling for natural basic materials

In the manufacturing of glass, paper, rubber and textiles

As a de-icing agent

Description of the Product Applications

A water mud containing varying amounts of dissolved sodium chloride, NaCl, as a major component. Undissolved salt may also be present in saturated salt muds to increase density beyond 10 lbm/gal or to act as a bridging agent over permeable zones. Starch and starch derivatives for fluid-loss control and xanthan gums for hole-cleaning are among the few highly effective additives for saltwater muds. Attapulgite and sepiolite are used in saltwater muds only for cuttings lifting. The primary use of saltwater mud is to drill salt strata that are prone to dissolution when exposed to other types of drilling fluid. A saturated salt mud is used to drill salt to prevent hole enlargement. In hot, plastic, salt zones, the hole may close inward unless extremely high mud weight is maintained. As an alternative to high mud weight, maintaining under saturation in the fluid allows controlled leaching to offset hole closure by plastic flow. Sized salt particles in saturated saltwater muds are used, along with polymers, to bridge over permeable production zones. The salt can be removed later with a water flush. Salt solids can increase density beyond 10 lbm/gal, up to about 13 lbm/gal, if needed.

NaCl solid particles that have a specified minimum and maximum range of particle sizes and may also have a specified distribution of sizes. Sized salt is used as a bridging agent in saturated saltwater systems used as drill-in, workover and completion fluids. Sized salt can positively seal permeable zones by plugging pores at the wellbore face. It is a preferred bridging agent because it can be dissolved by low-salinity water treatment to clean up the zone afterwards.


Sodium chloride or salt with the mineral name Halite and chemical formula NaCl is among natural minerals in the Halite group. Sodium chloride appears in nature as colorless or white crystals, or sometimes as yellow, red and blue crystals due to impurities, and is one of the most famous and most well-known minerals in the world, having the atomic number 42, specific gravity of 2.165 g/m3, hardness 2.5 on the Mohs scale, luster, transparent to translucent luster, cubic crystallization system, molecular weight of 58.454, boiling point of 1465 °C and melting point of 806 °C. However, such popularity causes to underestimate its importance. Sodium chloride is considered an important and essential economic substance for human life and has numerous applications including direct applications in food industry and indirect applications in sodium chloride-based chlorinated plastics.
