So protect yourself and your customer and specify the safest CSST product in the world! • TracPipe® Counterstrike® has been shown to be up to 400 times more resistant to the damaging effects of electrical energy than yellow CSST. • Uses the same AutoFlare® fittings as our traditional line of CSST. • The most complete range of CSST sizes (3/8”- 2”) available. • There are no additional bonding requirements for TracPipe® Counterstrike® imposed by the manufacture’s installation instructions. • Lays straighter and pulls easier, dramatically decreasing installation times (and saving you time and money in the process). • Unlike competitive brands, TracPipe® Counterstrike® is non-annealed making it more crush resistant, safer to install and easier to cut. • TracPipe® Counterstrike® has larger pipe diameters compared to competitive brands, so save money by using a smaller size Counterstrike! (ie 3/8” Counterstrike versus 1/2” other brand). • Highest overall EHD Flow Capacity Rating.

CounterStrike eliminated all my concerns about lightning. I feel it is the best material in the market.” “At first, we thought that CounterStrike seemed more rigid than yellow pipe, but we actually found that the smooth coating jacket aided us in the installation process, allowing it to flow easier when installing the product.” Black of the Past For decades, schedule 40 black iron pipe was the default choice for gas piping. But in the United States, there are about 65 people killed every year in gas explosions. That is why an alternative to black iron pipe was developed— corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST). First developed in Japan to solve the dangers of broken rigid gas piping in an earthquake, and then brought to the United States by the American Gas Association (AGA) and the Gas Research Institute (GRI) as an alternative gas piping solution, CSST was developed to eliminate the difficulties and dangers of rigid gas piping. Unlike black iron pipe, not one person has been injured or killed due to defects in CSST in the United States. In fact, of the approximately 380,0001 fires in US home structures every year, only 192 of these were attributed to CSST and lightning, while over 10003 were caused by leaking or broken rigid gas pipes! Rigid pipe presents a variety of problems: • Rigid pipe breaks in earthquakes, tornados and other natural disasters. • Multiple joints frequently leak. • Pipe dope deteri
