CLEANWELL® Dry is a totally dry multi-function coating replacing both storage and running compounds. It is applied in VAM® manufacturing plants on the surface of pin and box threads of VAM® premium connections.

CLEANWELL® DRY features:

– Anti-corrosion and anti-galling metal plating on pin and box to protect the steel from corrosion along the product life and improve its anti-galling performances
