1.1 This specification covers aluminum 1350-H19 (extra hard), 1350-H16 or -H26 ([n ]hard), 1350-H14 or -H24 (1/2 hard) and 1350-H142 or -H242 (1/2 hard) bare compact-round concentric-lay-stranded conductors made from round or shaped wires for use as uninsulated electrical conductors or in covered or insulated electrical conductors. These conductors shall be composed of a central core surrounded by one or more roller or die compacted layers of helically applied wires (Explanatory Note 1 and Note 2).
1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
