Polywater® F Lubricant is a high-performance, pourable liquid recommended for pulling underground fiber optic cable.  It is also suitable for pulling coaxial and copper-pair cable.

Polywater® F Lubricant wets and clings to cable jacket and evenly coats the jacket surface.  It continues to lubricate by leaving film after its water base has evaporated. It is compatible with a broad range of cable jackets, including polyethylene (PE) types.

Polywater® F Lubricant is a thick liquid, and is applied by pouring or pumping the lubricant into the duct system.
