  • May be customized (refer to label) using other substrates to accommodate RFID or other locating systems by request.
  • Will perform as intended at a minimum length of 20ft.

Available in two varieties: Professional Grade and XT with Kevlar. Adding an optional copper Litz wire laminated between layers of Signaltape film makes it traceable.
