KCl Substitute or Potassium Chloride Substitute

Muby Chemicals established in the year 1976, is pioneer in Manufacturing Chemicals for Oil and Gas Exploration, Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) and coiled tube Chemicals.Our advanced chemistry leading to an innovative and high-performance product range is coupled with effective on and off site management services.

We are manufacturer of Specialty chemicals, Pharmaceutical Excipients, Fragrance & Flavorchemicals in India, which are of IP, BP, USP, Ph. Eur., FCC or Food Grade, ACS, AR or Analytical Reagent Grade, LR or Laboratory Reagent Grade, Pure and Technical Grades of various chemicals.


In the USA, UAE, Iran Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and other oil producing areas, several hundred chemical compounds are used in hydraulic fracturing also called fracking, fracing or frac. In some areas like UK only ‘Non-Hazardous’ chemicals are permitted for fracturing fluids by the Environment Agency. All chemicals have to be declared publicly and increasingly, food additive based chemicals are available to allow fracking to take place safely.

Mubychem is an internationally preferred source for Stimulation Chemicals and Hydraulic Fracturing Chemicals. We serve various oil and shale gas producing countries like USA UAE, Kuwait, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, UK, Europe India etc. We are never too far from your well-site with multiple 24/7 company owned or rented warehouses in the India, USA and across the globe. With customers in several countries, we sell almost all the fracturing chemicals.

In general, most of all petroleum reservoirs contain clay/shale minerals and it is of importance to protect the water sensitive clays from becoming a damaging threat to permeability via swelling or migration. These clays are trapped into the reservoir matrix and when exposed to water. To a treatment fluid without protection swelling (plugging pores) and migrating-dispersing throughout the reservoir happens, resulting in production loss.

KCl-Sub-64™ is an excellent KCl Substitute that works as a Clay Stabilizer by inhibiting clay swellings and mitigation. It performance is guaranteed by exemplary results in Capillary Suction Tests and Roller Oven Testing.

KCL-SUB-64™ is a liquid product designed specifically for use as a replacement for solid potassium chloride (KCl).  KCL-SUB-64™ offers superior performance at a lower cost — without the handling, mixing and disposal problems associated with bag KCl. Because KCL-SUB-64™ is non-surface active, it does not effect wet-ability, create foaming problems, or cause emulsions. KCL-SUB-64™ is compatible with all known water based frac fluids, crosslinkers and breakers. It does not adversely affect fluid pH. The use of KCL-SUB-64™ on the fly can eliminate premixing and leftover saltwater disposal problems.

Form: Liquid
Color: Clear, colorless
Solubility: Water, acid, brine
Density: 8.5 lbs/US gallons or 1.02 gm/cc.
Charge: Cationic Flash Point: None

KCL-SUB-64™  should be used at 4.0gal per 1000 gallon of fluid where 2% KCl has been employed. More or less can be used, depending on the clay type and content of the specific zone in question. KCL-SUB-64™  is bio-degradable.

KCL-SUB-64™ is compatible with cationic and nonionic additives. A compatibility test is advised before use with anionic and amphoteric additives.
