Polywater® G offers crews a cable pulling lubricant that can be hand applied when pouring is not possible. Polywater® G is a single-polymer lubricant used for underground cable pulling in the telecommunication and electrical utility industries. This non-staining lubricant was widely used 30-40 years ago due to its ease of application, resistance to mold growth, and availability in field-friendly packages. Polywater’s newer complex-polymer lubricants, such as Polywater® J, are better suited for installing copper telecommunication and electrical cables. Polywater® J was specially formulated for today’s longer and more difficult pulls, pulling through multiple bends and working in hot environments. Polywater® J is also used in vertical conduit runs, as it won’t cold flow down into the box or panel after the cables are installed. If Polywater® G is still being used we recommend contacting American Polywater for a better solution for cable installation needs.
