ViChem L-10 / Super L Lubricant

Product Description

ViChem L-10 is an organic based vegetable oil specifically formulated to perform as a lubricant, gumbo inhibitor and corrosion inhibitor. It is especially effective as an alternative to oil-based additives where environmental constraints preclude the use of hydrocarbon based chemical additions.

Super L Lubricant is specially treated for better miscibility and ease of use in some water based fluids.

Application Functions

Can be used to reduce torque and drag and to encapsulate gumbo type shales. It also protects polymers in the drilling mud so that they can continue to perform in higher temperature environments. it is especially effective in directional wells where torque becomes an issue when sliding with a mud motor.


  • Is nonpolluting and biodegradable
  • Can be used in fresh / salt water and oil based muds
  • shale hydration and sloughing is reduced
  • Flows readily in cold environments
  • Increased rates of penetration
  • High film strength
  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Corrosion inhibitor

Typical Properties

  • Appearance - Viscous amber colored liquid
  • Flash Point - >250°
  • Specific Gravity - 1.056


  • 275 / 330 Gallon Totes
  • 55 Gallon Drums
  • 5 Gallon Buckets
