The lubricants' synthetic formulations help advance the properties of the compound, reducing friction for easier pulling. Both lubricants are nontoxic and nonstaining. They have greater clingability that coats the wires and conduit evenly, creating maximum lubricity, the maker says. The new line includes the waxed-based Premium Synthetic Wax wire pulling lubricant, designed for general electrical and utility projects. The Premium Synthetic Polymer, a new type of polymer/glycol-based lube, is for electrical, telecommunications and data applications. he ST-500 is a radio service tracker to help managers of aggregate, construction and other companies know what's being accomplished at every jobsite.
