Custom Underground Tape

Underground Pipe Marking Tape is used to prevent digging accidents which can lead to injury and interruption of service. Tape is sold in big 1000' long rolls in either detectable or non-detectable construction. Detectable tape is commonly used on buried plastic pipes and standard tape is commonly used on buried metal pipes. Standard tape is 4 mil thick and detectable tape is 5 mil thick complete with foil.

There will be a $95.00 surcharge to your total price that will appear in your cart.
