BESTOLIFE® 2000® NM, the non metallic alternative to API Modified, conforms to API RP 5A3. Ideal for running and storing. 2000® NM provides high temperature performance, is inert to chemical attack, and protects against corrosion.
Premium non metallic alternative to API for casing, tubing, line pipe and semi-premium connections.
BESTOLIFE® 2000® NM meets or exceeds the listed performance objectives in API RP 5A3. Contains a high-quality lubricating base grease formulated with H2S and oxidation inhibitors. It also addresses one of the major concerns in pipe yards and threading operations today: rejects due to pitting and corrosion. In a 700-hour salt fog spray test, the base grease and additive package utilized in BESTOLIFE® 2000® NM has demonstrated corrosion protection that exceeds the performance of the leading storage compound in the industry. The results of these tests show that BESTOLIFE® 2000® NM is not only an excellent “running” compound but can also provide superior protection during long-term storage.
