Polywater® introduces the CLR Clear Cable Lubricant. This product is popular in small cable runs, generally electrical and datacom installations. Commercial environments are particularly drawn towards CLR because of its cleanliness. More
Non-staining, biodegradable, non-toxic, and environmentally safe features make CLR a favorite among installers. This Clear Cable Lubricant is also developed with an added "clingability" which makes the cables easier to handle and helps the applications go a lot smoother. Simply a must have, wherever cable lubrication is needed.
- Biodegradable, environmentally safe product
- Temperature stable for a safer installation and non-combustible
- Harmless to humans
- Non-corrosive to steel, copper, and aluminum, which makes it compatible with cable jacket materials

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Polywater® CLR Lubricant can be squeezed, pumped or hand applied directly onto the wire or cable. The conduit should be clean and continuous.
To prelubricate for long or difficult pulls, squirt a liberal amount of Polywater® CLR Lubricant into the conduit before the pull begins and use a mandrel or a swab on the winch line to spread the lubricant during the pull.
Clean-up by wiping off excess lubricant with a rag.
Recommended Lubricant Quantity
Q = K X L X D
Q = quantity in gallons (liters)
L = length of conduit run in feet (meters)
D = ID of the conduit in inches (mm)
K = 0.0015 (0.0008 if metric units)
The quantity that is appropriate for any given pull can vary from this recommendation by 50%, depending on the complexity of the pull. Consider the following factors:
Cable weight and stiffness - (Increase quantity for stiff, heavy cable)
Conduit condition - (Increase quantity for old, dirty or rough conduits)
Conduit fill - (Increase quantity for high percent conduit fill)
Number of bends - (Increase quantity for pulls with several bends)
Pulling environment - (Increase quantity for high temperatures)
