Detectable Marking Tape

Detectable tapes can protect against costly damage to underground pipelines. The tape is 5 mils thick, which consist of aluminum foil encased between two layers of polyethylene plastic. The foil is visible from both sides of the tape and no inks or print extend to the edges of the tape. All ink is laminated to protect the printed warning message.

Many other common industry messages are available on special order, and almost any message can be custom-designed for your application.
