Polywater® A is the original single-polymer Polywater® Lubricant developed for underground cable pulling in the telecommunication and electrical utility industries. This non-staining lubricant was widely used 30-40 years ago due to its ease of application, resistance to mold growth, and availability in field-friendly packages

Polywater’s newer complex-polymer lubricants, such as Polywater® F for fiber optic and coaxial cables and Polywater® PJ for electrical cables, are better suited for today’s longer and more difficult pulls in hot environments or with multiple bends. If Polywater® A is still being used, we recommend contacting American Polywater for an improved alternative for your cable installation needs.

* Polywater® A is not recommended for LSZH/LSHF and certain CSPE and CPE cable jackets. For these jacket types, Polywater® LZ is the recommended/approved product.
