Klein Foam Wire Pulling Lubricant
Klein Foam Wire Pulling Lubricant Eliminates Drips, Stains, and Messes!
Wire pulling lubricant is nothing new to electrical scene. Klein Foam Wire Pulling Lubricant, on the other hand, will change the way electricians do their installations. Klein’s latest innovation promises to make the installation job easier and cleaner by eliminating the drips, stains, and general mess left by traditional lubricants.
“An electrician can spend hours applying traditional wire pulling lubricant and then cleaning up the mess it leaves behind,” says Klein Tools’ senior product manager Dave Mueller. “Our innovative foam lubricant eliminates all of that, saving time and money.”
Typically, installers have this goopy lubricant in their hand that they feed the wire through as it enters into the conduit in order to get it covered. With Klein Foam Wire Pulling Lubricant, you just shoot a small amount into the conduit, where it expands. As the wire is fed into the conduit, it is coated by the foam so hand application is no longer required.
In addition to the ease of coating the wire, Klein Foam Wire Pulling Lubricant also stays in place. Even if it is applied vertically, it won’t come out. No more drips and no more gelatinous mess to clean up once the job is done. It also won’t stain your clothing or skin.
The foam’s expanding properties allow it to go much further. One 19 ounce can takes care of the same amount of wire that would require a full gallon of traditional lubricant. That claim is based on directed use in 3/4″ conduit. I got the chance to see this in action back in April, and I can tell you that the expansion properties of the foam are impressive. A short burst filled several feet of conduit in our preview.
Klein Foam Wire Pulling Lubricant will be selling for $14.97 at the Home Depot. Keep your eyes on Klein’s website for the official product launch announcement and more information.
