Used for location of buried PE Pipelines, Tracer Wire is either a solid copper or cooper clad steel conductor insulated with a high density polyethylene (HDPE) coating that provides excellent abrasion, crush, chemical, oil and moisture resistance.
KTI supplied solid copper and copper clad tracer wires manufactured by Domtech in Trenton, Ontario. Many utilities are moving exclusively to Copper clad steel as it is lighter, stronger, costs less, and due to it having little or no scrap value has a lower theft threat than copper, yet retains the same signal capacity.
