Lubricant for Cable Installation into Microducts
- Clean and dry the tubing by blowing a tight fitting foam sponge through the microduct with high pressure. If excess water or dirt comes from the microduct, repeat the process. Trapped water can block the air flow.
- Shake bottle before use.
- Squeeze recommended amount of lubricant into microduct. Quantity can be measured with a syringe or estimated based on duct fill length (table below).
- Spread lubricant by blowing a foam carrier or sponge through the microduct as many times as necessary to avoid puddling at the front of the duct.
- Allow the duct lubricant to dry out completely by blowing in air for at least 5 minutes.
