* Polywater® J is not recommended for LSZH/LSHF and certain CSPE and CPE cable jackets. For these jacket types, Polywater LZ is the recommended/approved product.
Polywater® Lubricant J is the best known of the Polywater lubricants. For three decades, millions of feet of underground and industrial cable have been pulled using Polywater J. This results in both a popular and a proven product.
Lubricant J provides good tension reduction in all types of cable pulling. Use it on both electrical and communication cable. Because it has excellent shear resistance, Polywater J reduces friction well in conduit bends. Such bends are a major source of tension in cable pulling. See the sidebar Tech Data Sheet and friction measurement paper for additional friction information.
Polywater J is clean and slow-drying. Lubricant J dries to a thin lubricating film that retains lubricity for months after use. Quick clean-up is especially important in finished indoor use.
Because the residue does not burn and spread flame like some of the wax lubricants, Polywater Lubricant J is often specified for pulling fire-retardant cables. Additionally, it meets typical LEED® and Green Seal criteria. Lubricant J is UL Listed and water-based Polywater J complies with CARB regulations. Specify lubricant J for long pulls, multiple-bend pulls, or pulls in a hot environment.
Apply Lubricant J by hand or with a pump. Or try prelubricating with the unique Front End Pack™ Lubrication System. Packages are available for all types of cable pulling.
