Kendex®OCTG Orange Corrosion Inhibitor - Storage Compound
A unique, thixotropic, grease-like corrosion inhibitor, Kendex® OCTG was developed and evaluated specifically for long-term rust protection of Oil Country Tubular Goods. The highly polar, microscopic platelets are parallel to the metal surface. These platelets form overlapping particle layers that function as a moisture barrier.
Apply Kendex® OCTG to both the pin end and inside of the thread protector. All of the surfaces that are going to be protected by the Kendex® OCTG should be clean (devoid of rust and dirt) and dry. It has been demonstrated that a small amount of Kendex® OCTG inside the thread protector prior to screwing it on will push material forward giving better coverage to the nose of the pipe, covering the 45% chamfer and the flank area as well. The product is engineered with a low viscosity to allow one gallon of Kendex® OCTG to easily cover approximately 160 sq. feet under optimum conditions or one liter of Kendex® OCTG to cover approximately 3.39 sq. meters. A coating thickness between 1/32” and 1/16” applied uniformly over the desired surface will provide adequate protection.
RUST PROTECTION – Prevents pipe thread rusting for over 2,000 hours of 5% salt fog cabinet testing when applied at a minimum 10-mil thickness.
SELF-HEALING – Ability to creep at least ½ inch after application protects areas not coated, or where coating was displaced.
MOISTURE DISPLACING - Will displace moisture to insure good bonding and rust protection.
THIXOTROPIC - Readily applied by brush or spray but resists sag, run-off or flow.
LUBRICANT – Minimizes thread damage during assembly and disassembly of threaded ends.
THERMALLY STABLE - Coating resists cracking, disbanding or run-off or flow.
ELECTRICALLY INSULATING – Resistivity of about 1015 ohm-cm reduces opportunity for galvanic corrosion. Resistivity, conductivity and dielectric constant values are comparable to those properties for the thermoplastic and thermosetting plastics evaluated.
MICROBE RESISTANT – Coating is resistant to attachment by sulfur reducers and other bacteria, which normally accelerates corrosion.
UV RESISTANT – Resists degradation from sunlight
COMPATIBLE – Is compatible with petroleum-based solvents, oils and greases.
ADHESION TO RUST – Will bond to firm rust and reduce the rate of further rusting.
WELDABLE – Coating removal is not required before electric or gas welding, or for oxy-fuel cutting.
COATING REMOVAL – Hydrocarbon solvents or alkaline wash systems may be used for coating removal.
PACKAGING – Available in non –returnable 55 gallon drums – 412 lbs. net weight or in 5 gallon plastic pails 40 lbs. net weight.
APPROVALS – recommended for use by Hydril. See Report TU86-016A
