Headquartered in Houston, Texas, USA, Kelco Oil Field Group serves the drilling fluids industry with a global staff of industry-specific sales, customer service and technical experts, with distribution points located throughout the world.

Our decades of experience begin in 1965 when we introduced a unique, commercial grade xanthan gum to the marketplace. Our product portfolio now includes a full range of poly anionic cellulosic (PAC) products and carboxymethyl cellulosic (CMC) products as well as other unique biopolymers designed to enhance production potential while maintaining well costs.

Control over variable conditions, such as site temperature and humidity, as well as raw material quality variations, e.g., sand moisture content, is critical to construction mix formulations.

We offer nature-based products specifically designed for the construction industry.  Our application scientists understand the full scope of criterion required for quality, workable end products. Working with CP Kelco, you leverage our expertise while choosing from a wide range of useful, often unique, product properties that encompass high levels of functionality, excellent compatibility with different types of ingredients, and suitable for a wide range of applications, such as latex-based and ready-made plasters, filling compounds, putties, grouts, mortars, and more.

We have a strong understanding of the selectivity processes, the fundamental chemistry and the adsorption of mechanisms due to many years of flotation application work. We have modeled and proven the mechanisms which affect depression efficiency and depressant selectivity.

Through our own high precision metallurgical testing laboratory, we select the right product and optimize its application in our customer’s processes. Due to the high value associated with recovery and reagent efficiency, our focus is on high confidence testing and data reliability.

Our FINNFIX® AND CELECT® CMCs are designed within key parameters that translate into significant value for a given process.

We develop nature-based, highly functional, cost-effective products and solutions, and combine those ingredients with global logistic capabilities to meet the needs of customers across a wide variety of industries.

Our portfolio of ingredients includes a full range of products proven to meet industry standards and recognized as reliable in overall performance. These products are ideal for multiple industrial uses such as mining, oil field drilling and stimulation fluids, construction, paints and coatings, industrial cleaners, textile sizing and printing, and more.
