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 their 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 Polywater directly for specific jacket details.
