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)
