3M™ Aluminum Conductor Composite Reinforced received the R&D 100 Award for recognition as a technological breakthrough.
The core is stranded from all metal composite wires of high purity aluminum reinforced with alumina fibers. The outer, current carrying wires are a hardened aluminum zirconium alloy.
Compared to the same diameter steel core conductors, 3M ACCR has:
3M can help you to:
For additional support, we can perform hands-on demonstrations and cable installation training, bring utilities and contractors together to coordinate the project, and provide follow-up training for utility maintenance crews.
With proven success in conductor installations worldwide since its inception in 2001, we’ll help you meet reliability standards on budget and on time using cables that can perform for many years.
