Hydrotex® Introduces Techni-Glide®
Cable-Pulling Lubricant Combining High Performance and Environmental Sensitivity, Water Based, 96% Biodegradable, Extremely Low Aquatic Toxicity, Low VOC
Dallas, TX, September 9, 2010 — Hydrotex® announces the release of its new formula for Techni-Glide®, a high performance cable-pulling lubricant. The new formula qualifies for the Hydrotex Lubricants for a Healthier Planet™ product line. Techni-Glide is an environmentally intelligent fluid designed for use in all types of cable-pulling operations. This product is especially recommended for pulling cable over long distances, through multiple bends and in building installations. Techni-Glide is non-toxic, non-bioaccumulative and chemically inert and has Low VOC. Biodegradability as measured by the OECD 301B-28 day Sturm Test was 96.23%. Techni-Glide is virtually non-toxic in the OECD 203 Method Aquatic Toxicity Test; these attributes make it the lubricant of choice for marine and port installations and in any area where there is a concern of ground water, soil or water contamination.
Techni-Glide has superior friction-reducing properties which enable smooth cable pulling even under high sidewall bearing pressures. The unique formula contains microscopic poly-spheres that reduce surface contact and allow the cable to ride on thousands of tiny “ball bearings.” No sticky residue after drying, Techni-Glide remains slippery. Cable can be easily removed from conduit for future technology upgrade or a job that must be postponed can be finished at a later time.
Vice President Krystyna Muldoon states, “This product is specifically designed to be environmentally sensitive; we are excited that it is now in the Hydrotex Lubricants for a Healthier Planet™ product line which allows our customers to use a superior product and improve upon sustainability initiatives.” For more information visit www.hydrotexlube.com.
Techni-Glide is compatible with all commonly used cable jacket and conduit materials and the application rate is up to 60% less than other pulling lubricants.
