P1210 - Standard Tests for Determining Compatibility of Cable-Pulling Lubricants With Wire and Cable
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 should be compatible with the cable. They should not interfere with the function of any component of the cable system that they contact. Compatibility of cable-pulling lubricants with cable coverings 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.
1210-2005 - IEEE Standard Tests for Determining Compatibility of Cable-Pulling Lubricants With Wire and Cable
Criteria and test methods for determining the compatibility of cable-pulling lubricants (compounds) with cable jacket or other exterior cable covering are described in this standard. Cable pulling lubricants are used to lower the friction on cable as it is pulled into conduit, duct, or directionally bored holes. Compatibility is important because lubricants should not negatively interact with the cables they lubricate. Compatibility of lubricants with a variety of common cable coverings is considered.
