Manufactured for Long Life

Allied Tube & Conduit’s True Color electrical metallic tubing (EMT) is precision manufactured from high grade mild strip steel for exceptional durability and long-lasting life. True Color EMT is hot galvanized using a patented inline Flo-Coat process. This process combines zinc, a conversion coating, and a clear organic polymer topcoat to form a triple layer of protection against corrosion and abrasion.

True Color EMT is made from E-Z Pull EMT which combines strength with ductility, providing easy bending, cutting and joining while resisting flattening, kinking and splitting. Available in trade sizes 1/2 (16) – 4 (103).


True Color EMT (Electrical Metallic Tubing) has a special low friction ID coating called E-Z Pull that greatly improves the slip properties between conduit and wire. With E-Z Pull EMT, wire pulls through the EMT smoothly and easily, making installation easier and faster.

EMI Shielding

Allied’s True Color EMT is very effective in reducing electromagnetic field levels for encased power distribution circuits, shielding computers and other sensitive electronic equipment from the effects of electromagnetic interference. For more information, visit GEMI (Grounding and Electro-Magnetic Interference) software analysis program.

Codes & Standards Compliance

Allied’s True Color EMT is listed to Underwriters Laboratories Safety Standard UL 797 and manufactured in accordance with ANSI C80.3. These standards have been adopted as federal specifications in lieu of WWC 563. EMT is recognized as an equipment grounding conductor by NEC Section 250-118. Documentation for compliance with NEC Article 250 is also available in the GEMI (Grounding Electro-Magnetic Interference) analysis software and related research studies.

Installation of True Color EMT shall be in accordance with the National Electrical Code and the UL listing information. Allied’s True Color EMT is listed in category FJMX. Master bundles conform to NEMA Standard RN2.
