For optimum performance on API drill string connections, JET-LUBE EXTREME should be utilized with the torque charts in API RP7G or by contacting the drill pipe and connection manufacturer.
Premium drill string connections such as HI-TORQUE® (HT), eXtreme® Torque (XT®), and XT-MTM connections, etc., utilize make-up torques based upon thread compound friction factors of 1.0. Therefore, use the torque provided by the premium connection manufacturer. Adjusting make-up torque based on thread compound friction factor may still be advised.

*Many factors such as pipe size, thread geometry, drilling mud contamination,etc. affect the friction factor. This is a relative number and in all applications experience and prior knowledge should be used to adjust make-up torque accordingly. Contact your drill pipe manufacturer for torque and friction-related specifications.
