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.
This is the Winter Grade (WJ) version (for cold weather use in temperatures as low as -20°F (-30°C)).
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. Using PVC conduit, the following COFs were measured: PVC .11, XLPE .11, LLDPE .11, HDPE .09, THHN .13, XHHW .11. Method described in “Coefficient of Friction Measurement on Polywater’s Friction Table, 2007”. Typical values determined using 200 lbs/ft normal force.
