The AW core, which consists of a thick layer of aluminum (approx. 10 percent of the nominal wire radius) over steel, gives ACSR/AW conductors the advantage of the light weight and good conductivity of aluminum with the high tensile strength and ruggedness of steel. It has the following main features:
1.good mechanical properties
2.improved electrical characteristics
3.excellent corrosion resistance
4.better Sag properties
Applicable Standards: ASTM, AS, BS, CSA, DIN, IEC, NFC, SS –etc
Aluminium Conductors, Aluminium Clad Steel Reinforced (ACSR/AS or ACSR/AW) are concentrically stranded conductors with one or more layers of hard drawn 1350-H19 aluminium wires on Aluminium Clad steel wire core. The core can be single wire or stranded depending on the size. The aluminum-clad steel core may consist of a single strand or a concentric stranded conductor of 7, 19, 37 or more wires.
