Polywater® IceFree™ Encapsulating Antifreeze Gel System
Protects Fiber Optic and Comm/Data
Cable From Ice Formation Damage
Polywater® IceFree™ Antifreeze Gel is a specialty, non-freezing gel that is pumped into conduits around cable to prevent water ingress and subsequent ice formation.
IceFree™ is recommended for sections of ducts that are susceptible to freezing, such as bridge crossings or areas where duct is placed above the frost line.
The gel is pumped into the conduit or innerduct using high-pressure grease-type piston pumps as described in the installation instructions. There are several methods to contain the gel, depending on access to the conduit.
