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.
KeywordsPolymer; Matrix; Thermoset; Stranded; Carbon Fiber; Overhead Conductors
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.
