Since 1932, BESTOLIFE has been the most trusted name in the petroleum industry as a manufacturer of high performance premium thread compounds for every drilling situation. BESTOLIFE founder I.H. Grancell created the very first thread compound to combat galling, seizing, and down-hole makeup. Grancell, who made the formula in a dishpan, called his invention BESTOLIFE No. 270® and it quickly became the premier thread compound in the oil patch. In fact, BESTOLIFE No.270® is still available for purchase today.
