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.

PRO-TRACE HDD-CCS PE45 conductor meets or exceeds all applicable ASTM specifications, and requirements of the National Electrical Code.
