AAC & ACSR Aluminum Conductors

All Aluminum Conductors (AAC) and Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced Cable (ACSR) are a high strength, high-capacity stranded conductor used in overhead power lines. AAC & ACSR Conductors are popular for its low weight, low cost, good conductivity, tensile strength, shock proof properties and resistance to corrosion. These conductors are widely used in urban areas for short space applications and in high voltage substation conduction. The aluminum conductors contain 99.5% aluminum and 0.5% each of silicon and magnesium. The constant hike in the electrification rate in developing Asian countries like India and China have become a key driver for the aluminum conductor’s market. The extension of existing electricity grid to produce huge amounts of electricity and the rapid industrialization is splurging the demand for aluminum conductors across the globe.
