Press release date: April 19, 2017

STRATFORD, Conn. (April 19, 2017) – Electricians have often asked, “Why doesn’t an EMT manufacturer make corrosion-resistant tubing that won’t rust.” Now with aluminum EMT, contractors have their wish and can put away their rigid conduit threaders and reamers.

Aluminum EMT is the perfect material choice for indoor or outdoor, damp, wet or exposed environments. With Bridgeport’s line of Listed Zinc Alloy EMT connectors and couplings, contractors can quickly install a lightweight, corrosion-resistant EMT system that won’t rust.

The Bridgeport zinc solution, with aluminum EMT, provides countless advantages for the contractor: inherent corrosion resistance, lighter weight, no dissimilar metal concerns, easy fabrication, and a pleasing appearance. The Listed fittings also make for easy inspections.
