Loss Circulation Materials (LCM)

Granular loss circulation materials (also known as lost circulation materials or LCM) are added to drilling mud to help retard the loss of mud into fractures or permeable soil formations. Bri-Chem carries a variety of different LCM materials, which can be mixed together to create an LCM pill to seal the zone around the drilling area.
