scope:

This International Standard provides requirements, recommendations and methods for the testing of thread compounds intended for use on threaded casing, tubing, and line pipe connections; and for thread compounds intended for use on rotary shouldered connections. The tests outlined are used to evaluate the critical performance properties and physical and chemical characteristics of thread compounds under laboratory conditions.

These test methods are primarily intended for thread compounds formulated with a lubricating base grease and are not applicable to some materials used for lubricating and/or sealing thread connections. It is recognized that many areas can have environmental requirements for products of this type. This International Standard does not include requirements for environmental compliance. It is the responsibility of the end user to investigate these requirements and to select, use and dispose of the thread compounds and related waste materials accordingly.
