Coupling Gasket Grease

TUF-LUBE™ Grooved Coupling Gasket Grease

Tuf-Lube is a mixed fatty acid soap dispersed in glycols and water solvents with a clay pigment filler.

It resists evaporation and will not freeze.

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.

GroovJoint
  • Tuf Lube maintains its soft paste consistency and amber/tan color
  • Can be used from -10°F to 150°F.
  • Can be used on all types of pipe including asbestos cement, cast iron, concrete, plastic and clay pipe.
  • Will not deteriorate natural rubber, synthetic rubber or plastic gaskets.
  • Tuf-Lube is certified to meet NSF code 61 standards for potable water system uses.
  • Strict analytical standards and formula consistency are used to assure production of a safe lubricant for water pipe joining needs.
  • Environmentally friendly raw materials common in the soap and lubricants industry are used in producing Tuf-Lube.
  • Will not irritate the hands and is not toxic.
  • Contains no petroleum oils or phosphates.
  • Contains no silicone.
  • Manufactured in the USA.
  • VOC Content: Minimal (2%)
  • Available in 1 quart tub (#1010031) and 55-gallon drum (#1010033).
