About This Item
This is the first edition of CSA Standard C22.2 No. 249, Standard Tests for Determining Compatibility of Cable-Pulling Lubricants with Wire and Cable. It is intended to replace CSA Electrical Bulletin No. 550B dated August 15, 1985 and its Supplement, Electrical Bulletin No. 550C dated March 28, 1990.
This Standard is an adoption of IEEE Std 1210 with the same title.
The Canadian adoption of this Standard was prepared by the Technical Committee on Wiring Products under the jurisdiction of the Standards Steering Committee on the Canadian Electrical Code, Part II.
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 tension 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, etc., are not discussed.
This Standard utilizes accepted cable performance standards whenever possible. Relevant standards are cited in the text and listed in clause 2.
