no tracer wire failures!
Termite Resistant Tracer Wire
Polyfabrics designs our Termite Resistant Tracer Wire to be laid with non- ferrous pipes and cables. This ensures easy, accurate, reliable detection with electromagnetic locators.
Passing a low voltage electric current through the highly conductive 6 strand copper wire, will enable accurate detection of location and depth from the surface. Because a Nylon 12 jacket is incorporated into the insulation around the wire, termites are prevented from eating through the insulation. Hence the wire is not exposed, leading to possible corrosion and reduced the signal strength from the wire earthing.
When combined with SnakePit locator points, Polyfabrics termite wire provide a smart solution for locating pipelines & cables in more remote areas.
