Polywater Prelube 2000 reduces frictional drag during the blowing of outside plant cable into duct. It
increases the length of cable that can be blown in a single shot. Prelube 2000 can also be used to
blow in the hollow microtubes intended to hold future microcables. Over the last decade, Prelube 2000
has been proven in the blowing of tens of thousands of kilometers of cable in over 20 countries on a
variety of cable blowing machines.
Polywater Prelube 2000 has proven superior to paraffin oils and cable pulling lubricants for
cable blowing. The use of this lubricant results in longer installation distances.
Polywater Prelube 2000 is recommended by most blowing equipment manufacturers. It
increases installation distance on all types of machines.
Polywater Prelube 2000 is more economical than prelubricated duct.
Polywater Prelube 2000 is compatible with common fiber optic cable jacket.
A properly installed duct system with pressure-tight duct splices is an absolute necessity for efficient
cable blowing. Follow the equipment manufacturer's instructions. The duct must be clean, dry, and
mandral tested. Clean the duct by blowing a tight-fitting foam sponge through the duct with high
pressure. If excess water or dirt comes from the duct, repeat the process. Prelube 2000 is effective at
a coating thickness of 0.5 mg/cm2.
For smoothwall duct and high air speed machines (no missile), squeeze the recommended amount of
Prelube 2000 Lubricant from the table below into the duct.
