Kendex® OCTG

ORANGE CORROSION INHIBITOR
and STORAGE COMPOUND 

Description: 

     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, forming overlapping particle layers that function as a moisture barrier. 

 

Recommended application:  
     Apply Kendex® OCTG to both the pin end and inside of the thread protector.

 

Key properties: 
     RUST PROTECTION - Prevents pipe thread rusting for more than 5,000 hours of salt fog cabinet testing when applied at a minimum 10 millimeter thickness, displacing moisture to ensure good bonding and protection.
     SELF-HEALING - Ability to creep at least 1/2 inch after application to protect areas not coated or where the coating was displaced.
