Gilsonite powder is oil well drilling mud additiveFor many years, Gilsonite has been added to drilling fluids to stabilise boreholes through shale stratigraphic intervals, preventing borehole enlargement. It is plugs micro fractures, bedding plane voids, and pore spaces and forms a thin film on the borehole wall. Gilsonite is added at about 1 to 3 kg per barrel of drilling mud. It is also reduces drill string torque and drag, and thus reduces the likelihood of stuck [...]

Gilsonite asphalt grade is natural occurring hydrocarbon substances characterized by a high softening point (above 110° C) in the class known as asphaltite. They are mined much like other minerals and sold essentially in their native state. They are fully compatible with asphalt and have long been known as asphalt hardeners and reinforcing agents. Gilsonite applicable in asphalt is currently sold all over the world as an asphalt modifier in the form of a dry bulk solid granular [...]


Maximum water and weather resistance is obtained by using a paint containing gilsonite coat and the gas-proofed tung or oiticica (or mixtures of the two) oil without the addition of any other drying oil, but it is found that while this combination is commercially usable, it is difficult to brush, and it is preferred to add a viscosity reducing drying oil. For this purpose it is found that perilla oil is particularly satisfactory. Other drying oils such as linseed, soya bean, sunflower seed, [...]
