An environmentally safe vegetable oil based replacement for the present pipe dopes that contain heavy metals and petroleum carriers

  • THREAD COMPOUND ES’s unique formulation provides excellent protection against thread wear, galling and seizing for tool joints.
  • THREAD COMPOUND ES is free of both petroleum oil carriers & all heavy metals, such as lead, zinc, copper and aluminum, etc.
  • THREAD COMPOUND ES is highly resistant to water wash off.
  • THREAD COMPOUND ES is ideal for mineral exploration drilling projects where samples uncontaminated by heavy metals are required, and groundwater contamination is of concern to the mining company.
  • THREAD COMPOUND ES should be a preferred thread compound for all drilling applications including water wells etc.
  • THREAD COMPOUND ES protects inner & outer connections on reverse circulation drill pipe (inner o-rings and thread connections).
