Hot Zinc Coated
Special clear secondary coating applied after galvanizing provides added corrosion protection
Electrical Metallic Tubing
WESTERN E.M.T provides uniformity of weight, wall thickness, O.D. and I.D. concentricity, ductility and maximum strength
Western E.M.T. is made from strip steel, high frequency welded. A continuous hot galvanized process is employed to coat exterior surfaces evenly and smoothly; a special transparent secondary coating provides further protection against corrosion. Manufactured in accordance with Under-writers Laboratories UL-797, American National Standards Specifications C-80.3, Federal Specifications WW-C-563A. Approved by the 1987 National Electric Code article 348, for open, concealed and concrete slab installations.
Quality Controlled each step of the way – Regular tests for weld strength, Malleability, plating thickness and uniform smoothness of interior coating provides you with conduit of highest quality…. Western E.M.T.
Easy to bend- Perfect bends and offsets can be made quickly with lightweight easy to handle Western EMT.
Easy, trouble free wire pulling- A special baked-on coating on inside of surface of Western E.M.T. reduces friction and provides extra ease in wire installation.
No chipping, cracking, peeling-Outside surfaces are galvanized with zinc coating for superior corrosion resistance and long-lasting, dependable service. Special protective coating is then applied.
- Compatible with all types of building materials.
- Provides a lifetime of safe electrical installations.
- Low in cost – strong, durable.
