Polywater®  SPY Lubricant is a concentrated liquid that can be sprayed into the duct or wiped on the cable in a thin film. Industrial sprayers are available for automatic spraying application. Polywater SPY is based on unique lubricant chemistry and technology. Much like a paint, the lubricant thins as it is sprayed or wiped. Once on the cable or conduit surface, it thickens to stay coated.

Polywater SPY Sprayable Cable Pulling Lubricant reduces friction effectively and compares favorably with the other high-quality Polywater Lubricants.

Polywater SPY Sprayable Cable Pulling Lubricant has been successfully tested for a variety of uses:
