Polywater® A is the original single-polymer Polywater Lubricant developed 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 F for fiber optic and coaxial cables and Polywater PJ for electrical cables, are better suited for today’s longer and more difficult pulls in hot environments or with multiple bends. If Polywater A is still being used, we recommend contacting Polywater for an improved alternative for your cable installation needs.

* Polywater A is not recommended for LSZH/LSHF and certain CSPE and CPE cable jackets. For these jacket types, Polywater LZ is the recommended/approved product.
