Southwire's ACSS/TW conductor meets or exceeds the following ASTM specifications:
ACSS is a composite concentric-lay-stranded conductor. Steel strands form the central core of the conductor with one or more layers of 63% minimum average conductivity aluminum 1350-0 wire stranded around it. The steel core carries most or all of the mechanical load of the conductor due to the "0" (fully annealed or soft) temper aluminum. Steel core wires are protected from corrosion by Galfan® , zinc-5% aluminum-mischmetal alloy coating. High strength steel core, aluminized, and aluminum clad steel core is also available.
