    Abstract

    This specification covers fiber reinforced, aluminum matrix composite wire used for mechanical reinforcement in the manufacture of aluminum conductor, composite reinforced (ACCR). This wire consists of continuous filament fibers of aluminum oxide in a matrix of aluminum. The fiber reinforcement shall be continuous tows of aluminum oxide. Before stranding, the composite core wire of any diameter shall conform to the tensile breaking load requirements.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers fiber reinforced, aluminum matrix composite core wire used for mechanical reinforcement in the manufacture of aluminum conductor, composite reinforced (ACCR). This wire consists of continuous filament fibers of aluminum oxide in a matrix of aluminum.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.2.1 ExceptionSome non-standard SI units provided for information only do not appear in brackets.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
