At approximately 4pm on November 4, 2015 Attendees of the 28th Central Pennsylvania Geotechnical Conference were witness to another BIG-FOOT sighting. The event, sponsored by ASCE was well attended by over 450 attendees and 35 exhibitors. John Berry, COO of MATRIX Construction Products presented an informational session entitled Polymer Slurry Drilling/Construction Drilling Applications.
In order to gain full utilization of polymer drilling slurry additives it is necessary to become familiar with the types of polymers used to enhance drilling slurry properties. This knowledge allows the end-user to correctly apply a given polymer to meet a specific requirement of the drilling operation.
The objective of the informative session was to acquaint the participants with the proper use of BIG-FOOT® Polymer Slurry as applied to the installation of drilled shafts projects. In addition attendees were introduced to the function of polymer drilling slurry. Demonstrations and hands-on training were provided to demonstrate how MATRIX additives work and how easy BIG-FOOT is to mix.
It is safe to say that even the biggest skeptic left the session a believer. BIG-FOOT is real and we have proof. Click here for more information about this event.
