BK Bactericidal Pipe Jointing Lubricant

BK Lubricant has been specifically formulated to act as effective lubricant in the jointing of water pipes which require the use of rubber gaskets.  BK Lubricant was tested over three years both mechanically and chemically following requests from the australian water industry for a more effective lubricant in all conditions.

Properties.
  • Type tested to as 4020:2005. The type testing mentioned relates to the suitability of products coming into contact with water intended for human consumption. BK lubricant is also approved under the Australian Watermark scheme. Licence no. W.103.
     
  • The Bactericide contained in the lubricant is effective in stopping growth of bacteria that may have been introduced into the system during the jointing operation. These bacteria would normally form a colony in the joint area, which is very resistant to even high levels of chlorination. Thus continuing infection of the potable water continues.
    BK Lubricant eliminates the problem at the source.
     
  • Water soluble emulsion. BK Lubricant is quickly removed from the system when flushing of the system is commenced. BK lubricant does not contain any mineral oil or grease which is known to adversely affect the rubber compounds used in the rubber gaskets.
     
  • A very effective rubber lubricant under any load and weather conditions, including wet, hot and dry conditions. BK Lubricant is compatable with most plastics and rubbers but it is recommended that each company carry out their own tests regarding any potential degradation. 30 years of experience has shown that BK lubricant is compatable with most gasket materials.
    Thomas Grozier & Son Pty. Ltd. is an accredited quality company to: ISO9001-2008, licence number 419.  
     
  • BK Lubricants unique formulation means it is a far more effective lubricant that others currently on the market. The extra lubricity and its ability to withstand difficult weather conditions means that productivity is greatly enhanced. Rolling and therefore incorrectly seated gaskets leading to pipes failing pressure testing, is greatly reduced.

Using the correct lubricant in every joint, results in far greater productivity and a far higher and predictable standard of jointing. For excellent results always use our range of pipe jointing lubricants.
     
Application and flushing instructions.

Before inserting gasket, ensure that all foreign matter has been removed to ensure that the gasket seat is clean.  Use the lubricant to cover the chamfer and 25mm of the barrel. Lubricate the exposed face of the gasket ensuring that no lubricant gets between the gasket and socket.  Apply by gloved hand, stiff brush, spatula or cloth.

Flushing must be done with contents removed completely with thorough cleaning before final testing and putting the line back into service. NB. Flush to local authorities requirements if they require a more rigorous procedure.
