Pipe joint lubricant for concrete pipe that is applicable as a regular pipe joint lubricant or can be used as an underwater lube. Both are specially formulated for the rigors of underground pipe jointing and contain no petroleum that may damage some rubber gasket compounds. Either lubricant can be used on o-ring or single offset joints. Press-Seal Lubricants are designed for easy application and reliable performance with all types of pipe and manholes. Both regular and underwater lube do not change the durometer or volume of the gasket per ASTM C497, section 12.2 and ASTM D-2240.

Underwater Features and Benefits

  • Specially formulated for the most demanding installation conditions
  • Resists wash-off
  • Freeze-resistant

Regular Features and Benefits

  • Provides reliable, economical lubrication in all climates
  • Highly freeze-resistant
  • NSF approved for use in potable water systems

FOR PRESS-SEAL PROFILE
RUBBER GASKETS

The lubricating compounds listed on the front page are manufactured expressly for lubricating O-Ring & profile rubber gasket joints on concrete pipe or manholes.

  1. Clean all dirt, dust, and foreign matter from the joint.
  2. Stretch the gasket over the spigot end of the pipe and equalize by pulling the gasket sealing lobe about one inch and releasing the gasket. Repeat every 3 to 4 inches around the circumference of the pipe.
  3. Apply lubricating compound on bell only to insure proper lubrication.

*Important

The lubricating compounds listed in this first chart are manufactured expressly for lubricating profile rubber gasket joints on concrete pipe or manholes.

FOR PRESS-SEAL O-RING
RUBBER GASKETS

The lubricating compounds listed on the front page are manufactured expressly for lubricating O-Ring & profile rubber gasket joints on concrete pipe or manholes.

  1. Clean all dirt, dust, and foreign matter from the joint.
  2. Stretch the gasket over the spigot end of the pipe and equalize by inserting a screw driver or a flat object under the O-Ring gasket and rotating it at least one and a half times the circumference of the pipe.
  3. Apply lubricating compound on bell and gasket to insure proper lubrication.
