CU30

Production Thread Compound


PRODUCT INFORMATION

MOLYSLIP CU30 is a high performance, lead and zinc free production thread compound that can replace API Modified for casing, tubing and line pipe applications. The product is based on highly refined low sulphur, low pour point mineral oil thickened with a soap matrix. The product contains both copper flake and graphite as solid lubricants coupled with high levels of corrosion inhibitors, anti-oxidant and anti-wear additives that make it particularly suitable for use under the most aggressive conditions in corrosive wet/humid, dirty or chemical environments where a high degree of water washout resistance is required.

MMOLYSLIP CU30 has excellent lubricating and anti-wear properties to reduce friction during assembly preventing ‘pick-up’, galling and seizure facilitating easier breakout for routine maintenance. The product has been independently tested and proven to exceed the requirements of *API RP 5A3 / ISO 137678:2010
