Low Smoke Zero Halogen, CPE & CSPE Cable Compatible
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.
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).
Specifications and Applications:
Cable Compatibility: Passes IEEE 1210 physical and electrical testing on a wide variety of cable materials. It does not stress crack polyethylene. Refer to the technical bulletin for details.
Friction Testing: Shows excellent lubricity on a variety of cable jacket types. The following COFs were measured using Rigid Steel conduit: LSZH .16, CPE .15, CSPE .21, LLDPE .10; FRP conduit: LSZH .17, CPE .19, CSPE .24, LLDPE .11; PVC conduit: LSZH .08, CPE .10, CSPE .16, LLDPE .06.
Physical Properties: Dries slippery. It leaves little residue and won’t cement cables into conduit. Contains no wax or grease.
