American Polywater

In 1973, Nelson Jonnes, a Minnesota research chemist with more than a dozen patents under his belt, threw together some slippery ingredients in his basement and began selling it as a SCUBA diving-suit lubricant.   It was well received, but the potential income from that alone could not support his family of six.

With a quick change of marketing focus in 1974, the fledgling company began selling the same technology to the telcom and power utility markets in the form of a unique, water-based cable pulling lubricant.   It revolutionized the industry, which until then had used mud, wax, and grease.   Polywater® Cable Pulling Lubricants have been the leaders ever since.

Over the years, the Polywater® line expanded greatly.   Today, in addition to its twenty different formulations of pulling lubes for every type of wire and cable imaginable, the product line includes a broad range of cleaners and other specialty chemicals.   These include cable cleanerscontact cleanersgeneral electrical cleanershot stick and boom truck cleanersfiberglass wax and buffing kitspenetrating oilscold galvanizing sprayalcohol wipescable removal aidscable blowing lubricantcable pulling softwaretraining videosMRO aerosolspipe joint lubricantpump packing installation lubricantsconduit coupling adhesivesconduit de-icerslubricant pumpscable handling gloves,duct sealantssanding clothsdry toweletteswinter-grade lubricants for cold weather applications, pressurized cable leak sealantstransformer leak sealantshand and tool cleanersrubber goods cleaner, and a host of other unique chemicals and accessories.

American Polywater's horizon has expanded fast too.   Today, in addition to the communications and power utility markets, its products are sold into the general electrical trades, CATV, MRO industrial, and data communications markets in over fifty countries worldwide.

Strong distributor alliances, technical expertise, environmental sensitivity, and nearly three decades' experience in cable placement, lubrication and cleaning, make the simple motto, "We Bottle Solutions" ring true.   Polywater®products are the most extensively tested, approved, recommended, specified, and used.   Innovation has been and will be the American Polywater way.
