ASTM WK64822

    New Specification for Stranded Carbon Fiber Reinforced Thermoset Polymer Matrix Composite Core for use in Overhead Electrical Conductors

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: B01.07 | Committee B01 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK64822

    1. Scope

    This Specification covers Stranded Carbon Fiber Reinforced Thermoset Polymer Matrix Composite Core strength members which consists of multiple core strands for use in reinforcing or supporting overhead electrical conductors.


    Keywords

    Polymer; Matrix; Thermoset; Stranded; Carbon Fiber; Overhead Conductors

    Rationale

    Currently, no multi-strand carbon fiber reinforced thermoset polymer matrix composite core option standard exists. The overhead conductor market continues to demand reliability in HTLS conductor options. The electric utility industry recognizes ASTM as the opinion leader and will demand a common standard as a form of vetting in due process.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
