High Performance Lubricant
TECHNICAL SPEC IF ICAT ION
Lubricant J is a high-performance cable
pulling lubricant proven in the installation of millions
of feet (meters) of cable over the last 20 years.
Lubricant J provides excellent tension reduction in
underground and industrial cable pulls. It is
recommended for both communications and
electrical cable. Polywater
J has excellent shear
resistance for effective lubrication under high cable
sidewall pressure in conduit bends.
The residue from Polywater
J does not propagate
flame when used with fire-retardant cable systems.
Lubricant J is slow drying. The residue is a thin,
slippery film that retains its lubricity for months after
use. Its dried residue is non-conductive and non-
Lubricant J is a stringy gel. It can be
applied by hand or using Polywater's LP Pumps. It
is also available in the unique Front End Pack
J Lubricant shows superior
friction reduction on a variety of jacket types. Typical
friction coefficients at 200 lbs/ft (2.91 kN/m) normal
pressure are shown. Test results are based on the
method described in the white paper, "Coefficient of
Friction Measurement on Polywater's Friction Table,
2007" (polywater.com/FTable.pdf). Values are
averages based on cable jacket and conduit materials
from multiple manufacturers.
