    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers aluminum alloys in the 8000 series cited in B 800 in tempers "0" and H1X or H2X bare compact-round, compressed and conventional concentric-lay-stranded conductors made from round or shaped wires used as covered or insulated electrical conductors. These conductors shall be composed of a central core surrounded by one or more compacted, compressed or conventional layers of helically applied wires (Explanatory Note 1 and Note 2).

    1.2 The SI values for resistivity are regarded as standard. For all other properties, the inch-pound units are regarded as standard and the SI units may be approximate.

    1.3 Sealed conductors that are intended to prevent longitudinal water propagation are also permitted within the guidelines of this specification.
