MAXUS NC TAP heavy, viscous material and was developed for use in the most difficult tapping, cutting, and threading applications
MAXUS NC TAP LITE lower viscosity and therefore may be more suitable when tapping smaller holes.  Maxus NC Tap- Lite is emulsifiable and therefore can be removed with hot water.
