COPPER SUPREME SPECIAL BLEND PLUS
Non-Lead/Non-Zinc Thread Compound for Rotary Shouldered Connections

Copper flake, synthetic and
amorphous graphite, and other
Copper Supreme Special Blend Plus contains copper flake combined with a proprietary
blend of amorphous and synthetic graphites, oxidation, corrosion, and H2S inhibitors, in
a high temperature base grease. In addition to the galling and seizing protection
provided by the solids, it also contains a soluble extreme pressure package that is
surface active and helps to provide the load carrying capability required by the high
bearing stresses present in rotary shouldered connections. Copper Supreme Special
Blend Plus has a torque correction factor of 1.1 (10% additional torque required) which
will provide additional resistance to down-hole make-up as compared to lead or zinc
compounds. The corrosion inhibitor it contains allows it to act as running and storage
compound providing extended protection against corrosion. It applies easily in a wide
range of temperatures and conditions, is resistant to wash-out, and will not harden or
bleed excessively in storage.
RECOMMENDED FOR all drilling applications (rotary-shouldered connections), including high
temperature environments. Also effective for use on open gear jackup legs.
