Standards & References

Southwire's ACSR bare conductor meets or exceeds the following ASTM specifications:

  • B230 Aluminum 1350-H19 Wire for Electrical Purposes
  • B232 Concentric-Lay-Stranded Aluminum Conductors, Coated-Steel Reinforced (ACSR).
  • B498 Zinc-Coated (Galvanized) Steel Core Wire for Use in Overhead Electrical Conductors.
  • B500 Metallic Coated Stranded Steel Core for Use in Overhead Electrical Conductors.

Construction

  • Aluminum 1350-H19 wires, concentrically stranded about a steel core. Standard core wire for ACSR is class A galvanized
  • Class A core stranding is also available in zinc-5% aluminum-mischmetal alloy coating.
  • For aluminum-clad (AW) ACSR, please refer to the ACSR/AW catalog sheet
  • Additional corrosion protection is available through the application of grease to the core or infusion of the complete cable with grease
  • ACSR conductor is also available in non-specular.
