PRO-TRACE® High-Flex Copper Clad Steel otherwise known as HF-CCS comes with either a 30 mil (30v) or 45 mil (600v) insulation depending on your protection needs. This tracer wire is designed to embody the flexibility, memory, and feel of copper. It also has a 50% higher break-load, minimizing damage during installation and while in service. It’s equal to copper in signal performance, lower in cost, and has great price stability. This product is best suited for open-trench applications to conductively locate buried utility lines for the gas, water, sewer, telecommunication, and electrical markets.
PRO-TRACE ® HF-CCS is a flexible, copper-clad steel tracer wire. A low 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. Special annealing processes are performed during the cladding process giving HF-CCS the flexibility and feel of copper, but 43% higher in strength which means less breaks then copper tracer wire.
PRO-TRACE® HF-CCS uses a 30 mil or 45 mil, high-density, high molecular weight polyethylene (HDPE) insulation. 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. All insulation spark tested @5000 VAC (30 mil) and @7500 VAC (45 mil).
PRO-TRACE® HF-CCS meets or exceeds all applicable UL Standards, ASTM specifications, and requirements of the National Electrical Code. Buy American / AIS Compliant.
