BESTOLIFE® 4010® NM is the fourth generation of the BESTOLIFE® family of non metallic thread compounds for rotary-shouldered and premium connections, designed and developed to address environmental concerns in ecologically sensitive areas of the world.


BESTOLIFE® 4010® NM is the fourth generation of the highly successful BESTOLIFE® family of compounds designed with biodegradable greases and synthetic lubricating fluids, developed to address the environmental concerns related to the use of thread compounds for rotary-shouldered and premium connections, in ecologically sensitive areas of the world such as the North Sea, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, the South Atlantic, Alaska, and Sakhalin Island. BESTOLIFE® 4010® NM combines the excellent low-temperature application properties of BESTOLIFE® 3010® Ultra with superior downhole galling resistance and enhanced eco-toxicological properties to provide the ideal drill string solution for all rotary-shouldered (drill pipe/tool joints/drill collars) and many proprietary premium self-sealing casing/tubing connection applications, irrespective of offshore drilling location.


Non metallic compound for rotary connections and proprietary premium self sealing casing/tubing connections. Effective for use on slides, jacking systems, cantilever type rigs and assemblies. Salt Spray Corrosion Protection for up to 1500 hours. 4010® NM is non conductive and resistant to high pH/brine water.

  • Applies easily to cold, wet connections exposed to seawater in ambient temperatures as low as -40ºF/-40ºC and yet provides optimum protection in the deepest, hottest holes. Will provide lubrication and protection to 600º F/316º C and the solids will protect to 1,000ºF/538º C.
  • Has the ability to prevent galling of contact surfaces (including non-magnetic materials) under high bearing loads and to form a continuous gasket between the shoulders of a rotary connection during makeup. This is achieved through the innovative combination of graphite and other non-toxic materials, which interact to form a seal when compressed between seals, threads, and shoulders during makeup to provide performance properties that are equal to the very best heavy metal compounds. This gasket-like seal prevents connection washout, even under high internal fluid pressures and the combined loading of directional drilling, to provide maximum protection in the toughest conditions.
  • Meets the performance requirements of many proprietary metal-to-metal seal casing/tubing and high interference connection designs in Carbon Steel, 13 Cr., Super-Chrome and Duplex Steels.
  • Contains biodegradable greases and synthetic lubricating fluids
  • Approved running compound for VAM® connections. For more details, recommendations per type of connection, material and conditions of use, please refer to the VAM® recommended compound chart: http://www.vamservices. com/library/files/Table of Running Compounds.pdf or liaise with your nearest VAM® contact.
  • Conforms with API RP 5A3.
  • Provides superior protection for the threaded connections of OCTG’s during transit and long term storage.
  • Meets the current OSPAR Commission Harmonised Mandatory Control Scheme (HOCNF) regulations for the protection of the marine environment of the North-East Atlantic/North Sea.
  • Registered in 2008 for use in the UK/Netherlands as an OCNS Group E Clemical and in Norway as a Colour Category Yellow Pipe Dope.
  • Registered in the Danish Produktregistret with PRNo. (Product Registration Number) 2068624.
