Copperhead’s High Strength range of tracer wires combines the strength of fully annealed high-carbon steel with the conductivity and corrosion resistance of solid copper.

A fully annealed high-carbon core provides resilience, and strength and allows stretch to accommodate ground movement. The virgin-grade high-density polyethylene coating offers superior underground protection. The result is an industry exclusive in strength and reliability.

  • Superior impact strength
  • Strong, resilient, and flexible
  • 11% lighter than solid copper
  • Superior underground protection


Connectors   Connectors   Connectors   


Waterproof connectors join the insulated tracer wire, preventing corrosion and ensuring the system lasts the life of the pipeline. There are two types of connectors available for standard wires:

Single Lug connectors are inexpensive, waterproof, and simple to use for joining up 4 wire ends.

3-way Direct Bury Lug connectors eliminate the need to cut the main line, install in less than a minute, and are perfect for connecting services to the main line. The outer lid locks down in three places, keeping the connection free from contaminants.  All connectors are pre-filled with a dielectric silicone sealant that never hardens, making them waterproof and corrosion-proof.
