AAAC is a high-strength aluminum alloy, concentric-lay-stranded conductor. It is similar in construction and appearance to the AAC all-aluminum conductor.
The AAAC conductor is manufactured in accordance with the requirements of the latest issue of ASTM B399. The AAAC conductor is manufactured from a heat-treated, magnesium-silicide high-strength 6201-T81 aluminum alloy.
The aluminum strands consist of a concentric stranded cable of 7, 19, 37 or more wires. The sizes and strands listed are common examples used in overhead lines. Metric (mm) sizes are also available.
