Polywater® Lubricant J is a high performance, clean, slow-drying, water-based gel lubricant. Lubricant J provides maximum tension reduction in all types of cable pulling. It is especially recommended for long pulls, multiple-bend pulls and pulls in a hot environment. Lubricant J dries to form a thin lubricating film which retains its lubricity for months after use.

Polywater® Lubricant J is a specification-grade lubricant that does not promote flame propagation when used with fire-retardant cables and systems. It is harmless to humans, environmentally safe, compatible with all common* cable jacket materials, and can be easily applied as part of the unique Polywater® Lubricant Application System.

Polywater® Lubricant WJ (winter grade) has the same characteristics as Polywater® Lubricant J and is specially formulated for use in temperatures as low as -20°F (-30°C).

Front End Pack A conduit-sized polyethylene bag of lubricant. The Front End Pack travels through the conduit on the winch line prelubricating the conduit ahead of the cable being pulled.
