Covered Line Wire - Aluminum Conductor

Applications
Covered line wire is used primarily for 600v secondary overhead power distribution lines. It is not an electrically insulated conductor and often considered a bare conductor.

Construction
The aluminum conductors are 1350-H19 aluminum, 6201-T81 Aluminum Alloy, or ACSR conductors, concentrically stranded and covered for weather proofing with polyethylene, high density polyethylene (HDPE) or cross-linked polyethylene(XLPE).

Standards
ASTM B-230 - Aluminum 1350-H19 Wire for Electrical Purposes
ASTM B-231 - Concentric-Lay-Stranded Aluminum Conductors, Coated-Steel Reinforced (ACSR).
ASTM B-1248 - Polyethylene Plastics Molding and Extrusion Materials.
ASTM C-8.35 - Specifications for Weather-Resistant Polyethylene-Covered Wire and Cable.
ICEAS-61-402
