Lubra-Glide drillingfluid additive is made up of “CE” co-polymer oil drilling beads for increased lubricity and decreased torque and drag. For use in coiled drilling operations. Contains rate of penetration enhancers.



The original ce co-polymer bead!


The Only Bead Made Exclusively for the Petroleum Industry



Lubra-Glide CE Co-Polymer Beads® are spherical solid beads that provide mechanical lubrication, significantly reducing drill string wear and casing wear prevention through stand off and impact absorption.



  • Reduces torque and drag
  • Reduces drill string and casing wear significantly
  • Nearly twice the beads/pound than 2.0 SG material
  • Is non-abrasive to equipment
  • Is recoverable using Sun’s patented process
  • Is compatible with both oil and water-based fluids
  • Is environmentally safe
  • Resistance to deformation >25,000 psi hydrostatic
  • Thermally stable downhole >450°F in a drilling environment
  • Manufactured in fine or coarse grades

Typical Uses

  • Spot prior to running casing or liners
  • Spot prior to logging operations
  • Spot while drilling to transfer more true weight to bit
  • Spot in key seats to reduce torque, drag and sticking problems
  • Apply Lubra-Glide CE Co-Polymer Beads® Fine Beads for torque and drag reduction in coil tubing operations or with work strings
  • Lubricant for both OBM or SBM
  • Reduces risk of differential
  • Aids in directional changes or while sliding


Physical Properties

  • Form: Spherical Solid Bead
  • Color: Clear
  • Specific gravity: 1.06


  • Concentrations of 2–8 ppb (5.71–22.87 kilograms/m3) to control torque and drag
  • Concentrations of 8–12 ppb                             (22.87–34.31 kilograms/m3) for spotting in wire-line operations and running casing
  • Lubra-Glide “CE” Co-Polymer Beads® are easily added through the mud-mixing hopper


Lubra-Glide CE Co-Polymer Beads® is available in 50-pound (22.6-kilogram) sacks (48 sacks per pallet).
