Water Dispersible Pipe Joint Lubricant Announced
SOLON, OH — A new high performance water dispersible pipe joint lubricant has been announced by its manufacturer, JTM Products, Inc. Phoenix™ 27-XL lube effectively lubricates pipe and pipe gaskets for safe and efficient assembly of all types of pipelines. The lubricant has been certified by NSF/ANSI to meet Standard 61-G for potable water supply systems.
Phoenix 27-XL pipe lubricant has important performance improvements over previous pipe joint lubricant products. It has a greater temperature range, allowing application from -10°F to 150°F. Additionally, it has a more spreadable, creamy consistency, which allows the installer to apply a smooth, uniform coating to both gasket and pipe prior to assembly.
Phoenix 27-XL pipe joint lubricant is an all-season, all weather pipe lube, and can be applied equally well to wet or dry surfaces. It is non-hazardous, contains no petroleum, will not support bacteria and will not impart taste, color or odor to water in pipelines flushed in accordance with recommended AWWA procedures. It is FBC™ System compatible.
Phoenix 27-XL is manufactured by JTM Products, Inc., a leading manufacturer of pipe joint lubricant products. The Phoenix brand is the industry’s best known and most trusted. JTM makes products for both subaqueous and water dispersible applications.
