This tapping compound will help you extend the life of your drills. It is food-grade and does not contaminate water. It is offered at a thick compound in a 16 ounce can or as a thinner, modified grease in an 8-oz. squeezable bottle. Compound requires direct hand application by the user. The tapping grease has better flow which allows you to squirt it on the tool and not get it on your hands.
