rod grease xtra tacky

high performance drill rod grease

ROD GREASE XTRA TACKY is a specially formulated tenacious barium-based grease recommended for use on diamond drill rods to reduce vibration and friction between the rod and casing or rock strata. ROD GREASE XTRA TACKY has particular application in dry hole drilling, is thermally stable and will perform in a variety of harsh conditions. ROD GREASE XTRA TACKY has superior adhesion characteristics designed to provide exceptional film strength when subjected to extreme down hole pressures.

Typical Properties
Appearance: Thickener type: Thickener content: Base oil viscosity: Light tan stringy Barium complex 20 23 % SVS @ 100F: 775 1000

Recommended Treatment
Under normal drilling conditions:
NQ rods Initially apply 1 2 kg grease for 100 m

ROD GREASE XTRA TACKY is easily applied to the outside surface of the drill pipe prior to inserting into the hole. Heat is not required to soften the product before use.

As the hole greases up reduce after each bit change. Dry hole conditions:
NQ rods HQ rods PQ rods 1 3 kg grease for 100 m 2 4 kg grease for 100 m 3 5 kg grease for 100 m

Increases drilling efficiencies Adheres to the rod under virtually any condition Resistant to hard, saline water Thermally stable, extreme pressure resistance Can be applied to wet surfaces Reduces wear to the drill string Reduces rotational torque and vibration Improves productivity Protects metal surfaces.

Hole condition will vary and grease should be used accordingly.
