SPECIALLY FORMULATED FOR SOME OF THE TOUGHEST CONDITIONS ON EARTH

New HONEY KOTE from BESTOLIFE is the superior choice when maximum protection against seizing, galling, and load-bearing stress is critical. This innovative premium compound has been specially formulated to resist washout and corrosion while providing ultimate efficiency in higher temperature environments. Also provides long-term storage protection for threaded surfaces in a variety of conditions.

 

WHY HONEY KOTE?

Protection for drill collars & drill pipes under severe drilling conditions requires a highly versatile formula that resists corrosion and stores well. HONEY KOTE™ also solves usage problems because it applies easily in a wide variety of temperatures and working conditions. It won’t run off or bleed at high temperatures or harden in storage. It has a great copper look and silky smooth feel!


TOUGH. TESTED. SWEET!

This high temperature compound for drill collars and drill pipe is specially designed for inherent resistence against extreme pressure and water. HONEY KOTE™ conforms to the latest ISO API standards for recommended practices relating to the use of thread compound for rotary shouldered connections. HONEY KOTE™ is also up to 20% more cost effective than similar competitive products.


BEARING STRESS

Bearing stress is the contact pressure between the pin and box at the make-up shoulder. As the tool joint is tightened, the bearing stress at the make-shoulder increases. The maximum bearing stress is the function of the maximum torque and the total area of make-up shoulder. BESTOLIFE HONEY KOTE™ protected the NC50 tool joint from galling caused by high bearing stresses. The 54,500 ft-lbs. created calculated bearing stress on the make-up shoulder to 143,500 psi.


PRESSURE TEST

The pressure test objective is to show the ability of BESTOLIFE HONEY KOTE™ to seal very high pressure at the makeup shoulder. The test was conducted by increasing pressure incrementally up to 25,000 psi, about 10,000 psi higher than pressure used in fracking operations.
