Product characteristics & customer benefits

Metal to metal seal

Ensures well integrity

  • The high contact pressure in the seal area is reinforced by the internal shoulder.


Smooth internal profile

Minimizes turbulences

  •  The flush internal profile minimizes turbulences and provides good conditions for internal pipe coating.


Fast & easy make-up

Saves running time

  •  The tapered buttress thread design ensures a high stress performance and allows easy make-up even under severe conditions. The internal shoulder reinforces the contact pressure in the seal area and acts as a positive make-up stop.
