Product Details

ACSR Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced

Product Description:

Similar to All Aluminum Conductor, this conductor is centered by a steel galvanized central core. The steel core can be
varied to achieve the desired durability and conductor strength. The outer layers of this conductor are made of
aluminum, providing a corrosion-resistant, long-lasting product. Application of grease to the core or to the entire cable
can further improve the cables resistance to corrosion.


Like AAC, ACSR is primarily used as an overhead transmission cable and can also be used for primary and secondary
distribution. This conductor is typically preferred in a heavy construction area because of its reinforced steel core.
Although it is heavier than AAC, it can be moved in and out of a construction area relatively easily. This cable is also
useful in areas with high winds or frequent storms.


In accordance with specifications set forth by the American Society for Testing and Materials:

This product is composed of a variety of aluminum conductors. B-230, 231, and 232.
Steel reinforced core is coated with B-341 aluminum, B-498 Zinc, and B-802 Zinc-5% Misch Metal alloy.
