Draft Scope/Description:

This standard applies to cable-pulling lubricants (compounds) and the testing and analysis of their interaction with wire and cable. Cable-pulling lubricants are used to lower the friction on cables when they are installed (pulled) into conduits, ducts, or directionally bored holes. These lubricants and/or their residues are in direct contact with the cable exterior covering and may remain so for the life of the cable. Cable-pulling lubricants shall be compatible with the cable. They shall not interfere with the function of any component of the cable system that they contact.

Compatibility of cable-pulling lubricants with cable covering is the only subject of this standard. Other important performance criteria for cable-pulling lubricants such as friction reduction, toxicity, combustibility, and so on are not discussed.

This standard uses accepted cable performance standards whenever possible. Relevant standards are cited in the text and listed in Clause 2 and Annex A.
