Low Smoke Zero Halogen, CPE & CSPE Cable Compatible

  • Low Friction Coefficient – Maximum tension reduction on all types of cable jackets.
  • Universal – Suitable for all types of jackets and cable, including power, control, and instrumentation cable.
  • Specification Grade – Meets the performance requirements of power & petrochemical plants, mass transit systems, airports, and high-occupancy buildings.
  • Low-Smoke Zero-Halogen (LSZH/LSHF) Compatible – Extensively tested on LSZH/LSHF thermoplastic and thermoset jackets.
  • CSPE (chlorosulfonated polyethylene) Compatible – Suitable for use on CSPE fire-retardant cable jackets.
  • CPE (chlorinated polyethylene) Compatible – Suitable for use on CPE fire-retardant cable jackets.

Polywater® LZ offers proven cable compatibility, superior combustion resistance, and an inherently low coefficient of friction. Polywater® LZ should be specified for installations of LSZH/LSHF cable in duct and where fire propagation is a concern.  This is our most versatile lubricant that can be used on all types of cable jackets.

Because of ongoing production and formulation advances in LSZH cable technology, please verify with cable manufacturers the current status of lubricant compatibility, or contact American Polywater directly for specific jacket details.

Wax-based lubricants destroyed some low-smoke-zero-halogen jackets on aging.

Lubricant residue from an adjacent duct system contributed to LSZH jacket failure.

Product/Package Notes:

Polywater® LZ comes in two grades: Regular Grade LZ and Winter Grade WLZ (for cold weather use in temperatures as low as -20°F/-30°C).

Polywater® LZ can also be pumped using the LP-D5 Drill-Powered Pump (see sidebar).
