Lubricants

Formulated to meet specific requirements, our lubricants are available in a wide range of polymer and silicone-modified formulations in gel, creamy gel, or pourable forms. We offer a lubricant to match the type and weight of cable to be placed. Our lubricants are UL listed and available in Summer and Winter grades.

 

 

F-100i
HydraLube F-100i incorporates new lubricant technology to create a high performance, water-based pourable lubricant formulated for many applications, such as fiber optic, coaxial, 600 V and higher voltage-rated cables. It is designed to meet or exceed all cable pulling requirements with respect to viscosity, cling, drag, wetting, operational temperature range and reduction of pulling tension. Lubricant application systems are available. UL Listed.
F-150i
HydraLube® F-150i incorporates new lubricant technology to create a high performance, water-based pourable lubricant formulated for many difficult applications, including extremely long pulls with multiple bends. It is designed to meet or exceed all cable pulling requirements with respect to viscosity, cling, drag, wetting, operational temperature range and reduction of pulling tension. Lubricant application systems are available. UL Listed.
F-200i
HydraLube® F-200i incorporates new lubricant technology to create a high performance, water-based gel lubricant formulated for many difficult applications, such as 600 V and higher voltage-rated cables. F200i is designed to meet or exceed all cable pulling requirements with respect to viscosity, cling, drag, wetting, operational temperature range and reduction of pulling tension. Lubricant application systems are available. UL Listed.
F-300i
Hydralube® F-300i is a polymer-based, water soluble lubricant specifically formulated for placement of wire and cable for electric and telecommunications applications. The pourable gel consistency of Hydralube® F-300i allows for easy application in underground horizontal pulls, whether by pouring directly into the cable feeder tube or applying by pump, thus avoiding the mess of hand application. Hydralube F-300i is designed to meet or exceed all cable pulling requirements with respect to viscosity drag, wetting, operation temperature range, and reduction of pulling friction.
AT-500
Hydralube® AT-500 is a high performance silicone lubricant formulated specifically for use with compressed air-assisted cable blowing, jetting and pushing systems. These systems inject a high volume of air into the conduit which will rapidly dry out conventional cable placement lubricants (including silicone-based) and cause surface stickiness. Futhermore, the initial temperature of the compressed air can be very high, which will accelerate drying of the lubricant. Hydralube® AT-500 deposits a special low friction silicone coating on the conduit wall surface that is resistant to the drying effects of the rapid air movement and high heat. This product is fully compatible with cable jackets and HDPE or PVC conduit systems.
Lubaduk
LUBADUK® keeps pull tensions low; up to 74% less friction and 50% less pulling tension than with other lubricants. The effectiveness of LUBADUK® has been proven in the field and with extensive testing. Reduced cable tension (as much as 50%) greatly reduces the wear on cable pulling equipment and improves safety. A unique shear-sensitive carrying agent holds a dispersion of silicone oil and microspheres in suspension. LUBADUK® microspheres are tiny ball bearings, with diameters between 0.010” and 0.020.” Pulling cable with LUBADUK® means cable actually rolls on a layer of microspheres, which keep friction between cable and conduit extremely low. Any change in the cable contact point provides a fresh layer of microspheres, keeping friction low.
