These chemicals modify the relationship between viscosity and percentage of solids in a drilling mud, and may be used, further, to reduce gel strength, increase a fluid’s pumpability. Principal purpose of a thinner is to function as a deflocculant to reduce attraction (flocculation) of clay particles which causes high viscosity and gel strengths.
