Next generation cable lubricant
Velocity is an ultra-low friction cable pulling lubricant that is designed to help electrical workers pull electrical, telecommunications and data wire and cable. The lubricant is designed to provide a uniform coating on multiple cable jacket materials in environments from 25 to 140 degrees F, and to dry slowly, maintaining lubricity for several months. The cream colored gel is non-toxic, non-flammable and non-corrosive. It will not stain skin or clothing, and cleanup requires just soap and water. The cable-pulling lubricant is available in one-quart squeeze bottles; one, five and 55-gallon drums; and one-quart and half-gallon bags.
