Raychem 50 years
Let’s celebrate! 50 years of RAYCHEM
Since 1972, RAYCHEM has been quietly going about its business. Mile after mile of our heating cables have been installed under floors on pipelines within buildings. Largely unnoticed. Until now. After all these years, it’s time to get noticed

In 1972, the heat tracing division of the Raychem Corporation (now a part of nVent) patented and produced the world’s first commercially successful electric self-regulating heat tracing cable. Since then, the company has sold and installed over 1.8 billion feet (550,000 km) of heating cable in over 100 countries and continues to launch innovative products that have expanded the application of heat tracing technology.
Self-regulating heating cables offers higher levels of safety in hazardous areas and became the first and, at times, only choice in a variety of critical settings within the energy and chemical process industries
