Cupron® copper oxide-based technology is infused directly into both the emitter and stripe of the dripline through a patent-pending process for maximum performance. The integration of copper oxide in the external stripe and internal emitter and the unique patented emitter design with physical root barrier provides three levels of protection, giving your system the best defense against root intrusion, inside and out.
Roots are one of the biggest threats against a high performing drip system, they can enter the outlet hole and emitter reducing or blocking flow. Cupron® copper oxide (CU20) technology effectively deters roots from entering the dripline. During manufacturing, the copper oxide is infused into the emitter and stripe of the dripline through a patent-pending process which ensures that the copper will remain embedded for the life of the product. It will not wash off, wear off or leach out.
Netafim Techline driplines provide a wide range of CV emitter options to address a variety of installation requirements from flat surfaces, slopes to subsurface.
Copper is used in many industries for its antimicrobial properties and is recognized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) as the first antimicrobial metal. It is an essential nutrient for humans and bacteria, but in specific concentrations, it can serve as an antimicrobial agent.
Cupron’s proprietary technology is impregnated at specific concentrations to our patent-pending process ensuring it remains effective throughout the life of the product.
Netafim stands behind Techline Copper with an unprecedented warranty to be free of emitter plugging due to root intrusion for a period of 15 YEARS from the date of original delivery.
Techline Copper qualifies for LEED credit 4.2 as it contains a minimum of 20% polyethylene post-consumer recycled material.
Permanent identification of the model, flow rate and emitter spacing right on the dripline for quick and easy reference.
