Klein foam wire pulling lubricant promises no stains or drips
By Alyssa Dalton
October 23, 2014 – “An electrician can spend hours applying traditional wire pulling lubricant and then cleaning up the mess it leaves behind,” says Dave Mueller, senior product manager at Klein Tools.
“Our innovative foam lubricant eliminates all of that, saving time and money.” Klein has introduced a foam wire pulling lubricant, saying it will stay where the user applies it and wipe away clean without staining hands, clothing or carpet. Instead of spreading it onto the wires, the lubricant is applied directly into the conduit. It then fills the conduit and coats the wires as they are pulled through. The foam will not drip out even if it is used in vertical conduit, adds Klein.
