Phoenix 27-A is a mixed fatty acid soap dispersed in glycols and water solvents with a clay pigment filler. Mating of abutting pipes forces the gel into the cavity, thus providing the needed lubrication to complete coupling and seal the joint. The soap lubricant does not dry out when gaskets are stored in sealed plastic containers or bags.
Phoenix 27-A maintains its soft paste consistency and amber/tan color. It can be used from 0°F to 150°. It can be used on all types of pipe including asbestos cement, cast iron, concrete, plastic and clay pipe. It will not deteriorate natural rubber, synthetic rubber or plastic gasket.
Phoenix 27-A is certified to meet NSF code 61 standards for potable water system uses. Both JTM and NSF use strict analytical standards and formulation consistency to assure production of a safe lubricant for water pipe joining needs.
Phoenix 27-A utilizes environmentally friendly raw materials common in the soap and lubricant industries. It will not irritate the hands and is not toxic. It can be cleaned using warm water and soap. It contains no petroleum oils or phosphates.
