Techline Copper™

NETAFIM SETS THE BAR FOR INNOVATION WITH TECHLINE COPPER™

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 and large filtration bath area provides three levels of protection, giving your system the best defense against root intrusion.

Root Intrusion

MAXIMUM DEFENSE AGAINST ROOT INTRUSION

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.

TECHLINE DRIPLINES ARE THE HIGHEST PERFORMING DRIPLINES IN THE INDUSTRY

Netafim Techline driplines provide a wide range of CV emitter options to address a variety of installation requirements from flat surfaces, slopes to subsurface.

  • Check Valve - High check valve holds back 8.5' of water for distribution uniformity
  • Anti-Siphon - Prevents debris from entering the emitter outlet at system shut-down. Surface and subsurface installations don’t require air relief valves
  • Pressure Compensating - Delivers precise, equal amounts of water over a broad pressure range
  • Continuous Self-Flushing Emitter - Flushes debris as it’s detected

Benefits of Copper Stripe

WIDE COPPER STRIPE SHIELDS AGAINST ROOT INTRUSION

  • Wide stripe design makes it easy to identify the dripline as Techline Copper
  • Embedded Cupron® provides a layer of defense against root intrusion
  • Cupron® copper oxide (Cu20) technology will not wash out, wear off or leach out. Remaining effective throughout the life of the product
  • Cupron® copper oxide is approved for use by the EPA ensuring peace of mind

Cupron® Copper Oxide

POWER OF CUPRON® COPPER OXIDE ANTIMICROBIAL TECHNOLOGY

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.
