Southwire’s ACSS 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. Ultra high-strength steel core wires are protected from corrosion by Galfan® , zinc-5% aluminum-mischmetal alloy coating.
