Drilling Fluid Additives

Kraton offers a unique combination of both pine chemicals and specialty polymer products for oil and synthetic-based drilling fluid systems. Leveraging this broad portfolio and our commitment to customer collaboration, Kraton is motivated to bring the next generation of value added sustainable solutions to the market.



As the world’s largest manufacturer of pine chemicals, Kraton delivers quality solutions to the market for over 50 years.  We manufacture crude tall oil, distilled tall oil, tall oil fatty acids, dimer and trimer acids for use as intermediates for emulsifiers and rheology modifiers in drilling fluids.  





Kraton styrenic block copolymers (SBC) are uniquely suited for oil and synthetic-based fluids through nano-scale micellar technology.   These products have demonstrated value in barite sag mitigation, rheology modification and fluid loss performance.
