PRO-TRACE HDD-CCS PE45 tracer wire has almost 7X the break load of copper, which allows 1 wire to be installed in directional boring and pipe bursting applications. This tracer wire provides the perfect balance between strength, ductility, and brittleness to ensure durability. Bottom line is PRO-TRACE HDD-CCS tracer wire is superior to copper in strength and durability.
PRO-TRACE HDD-CCS PE45 is an extra high-strength, copper clad steel tracer wire. A high carbon steel core, metallurgically bonded with a copper cladding, that is uniform and continuous, creating a bi-metal conductor that acts as one and is corrosion resistant. The extreme break load allows only 1 conductor to be used in any tracer wire application for directional drilling (boring) or pipe bursting. It provides the perfect balance between break load, ductility, and decreased brittleness. It is the best performing tracer wire on the market for mechanical strength.
PRO-TRACE HDD-CCS PE45 uses a thicker, 45 mil, high-density, high molecular weight polyethylene (HDPE) insulation for extra protection in demanding installs. HDPE provides an excellent balance of surface smoothness, processing ease and electrical consistency. HDPE provides superior strength against underground elements that help prevent accidental breaks caused buy rocks in shifting soil conditions.
