Copper-Clad Steel vs Copper Tracer Wire

CCS vs. Copper

Compared with copper tracer wire, what are the advantages of copper clad steel tracer wire?

What conductor of tracer wire is the best choice on the market for open trench and directional drilling applications?

What is tracer wire?

Tracer wires, also known as locating wires, can locate underground non-metallic pipelines and other utility lines.

The most common applications are gas, water, sewer and fiber optics.

The Advantages:


Firstly, Lower Cost

Save 20% of your budget.




Secondly, Anti-theft

Low resell value for theft.

Treated surface to minimize attention.



Thirdly, Reliability

Keep protecting you for 30 years.

Better performance against extreme

working condition.


Fourthly, Easy Installation

No tooling & accessories adjustment

require bend, connect and weld like



Next, Weighs less

Less shipping fee and other cost.




Lastly, Higher Break Load

43% higher break load and 7X stronger

than traditional copper wire.


Tracer wire installation method:

tracer wire open cut

Open Cut

High Strength CCS Tracer is a popular choice.

If the job site permits ground above utilities can dig trenches or plow.






horizontal directional drilling

Directional Drilling

Bring a directional drill rig when your job site has buildings, roads, sidewalks, or anywhere you can’t dig trenches.

Moreover, extra high strength reinforced tracer wire with excellent breaking load strength ideal for drilling.

Stop using multiple wires and get the job done in one go with this tried and tested product.

Pipe Bursting

Pipe blasting allows your crew to replace or expand pipelines without digging traditional trenches.

Therefore, you need the strength of ultra-high-strength enhanced tracer lines.

In a word, get the job done cleanly and efficiently.
