AS wire is manufactured by the continuous extrusion method which bonds high purity aluminum to high strength steel wire. The thick aluminum cladding provides AS wire with superior corrosion resistance as well as high conductivity. AS wire incorporates the capability to vary the aluminum thickness as required for the higher conductivity described in the latest ASTM and IEC standards.
Conex Cable has supplied high quality aluminum-clad steel (AS) wire and cable products to electric utilities, cable manufacturers, and accessory manufacturers since 1988. Conex Cable manufactures overhead transmission line conductors, ground wire, guy wire, guy grip wire, and AS wire for optical ground wire (OPGW) applications.
