API-Modified - High Pressure Thread Compound
From API Compounds
API-MODIFIED will seal and withstand pressures to 10,000 psi and will not harden or dry. Its lubricating characteristics reduce friction in the makeup of casing and tubing, preventing galling and wear. Maximum thread engagement is ensured, providing optimum leak resistance.
JET-LUBE API-MODIFIED is a high-pressure thread compound that conforms to or exceeds the requirements of API RP 5A3 and former API BUL 5A2. It also contains rust and oxidation inhibitors blended in JET-LUBE’s unique grease compounded from custom-refined, low-sulfur oil to ensure brushability over a wide temperature range, tenacious adherence to all surfaces, resistance to water washout, and prevention of rust/corrosion.
