October 1, 2007 -- MaxCell has released its MaxLube, a cable lubricant developed in partnership with American Polywater, specifically designed for use with MaxCell's flexible, multi-celled, textile innerduct system.
MaxCell contends that the lubricant provides maximum reduction in friction, allowing customers to install cables more quickly, with less tension exerted on the cable.
"MaxCell performs at its best with lubricated cabling, to keep friction to a minimum," says MaxCell's president, Jerry Allen. "MaxCell used with a quality lubricant like MaxLube provides the fastest pull possible. Our customers have reduced installation times significantly by using MaxCell's strong but light, easier to pull innerduct. We've designed a lubricant that complements MaxCell perfectly and is simple and fast to apply."
According to the company, the MaxLube lubricant goes on as a thin film, and performs even after it has dried. The lubricant is available in disposable wipes for shorter length installations, or in a spray bottle for continued use. The spray bottle can also be used to re-saturate the MaxLube wipes for quick application.
