Q8 Copper Thread
Q8 Copper Thread is a modified-clay based compound, incorporating approximately 30% of copper, graphite and aluminium in colloidal form as a solid lubricating agent. Q8 Copper Thread is a specialised lubricant for pipe-threaded connections. It overcomes galling on assembly and reduces dismantling torque. Q8 Copper Thread is suitable for use across the temperature range of –30°C to +1100°C and will protect against seizure due to corrosion and chemical attack. Typical applications include pipe-fitting and valves in the oil gas, chemical and petrochemical industries and on oil-drilling equipment. Q8 Copper Thread has also found limited use as a high-temperature lubricant in anti-friction and plain bearings fitted to kiln cars.
