Covered Line Wire With Crosslinked Polyethylene (XLPE)

Aluminum Conductor Covered with Black Crosslinked Polyethylene

...

Construction:

  1. Conductor:Conductors are solid or stranded compressed aluminum
  2. Insulation:Black Crosslinked Polyethylene (XLPE)

Applications and Features:

Aluminum alloy 1350-H19 or 6201 concentrically stranded. Covered with crosslinked polyethylene (XLP). Used primarily for, but not limited to, overhead secondary distribution lines. Installed on insulators, otherwise treated as a bare conductor. Crosslinked covered line wires have the below temperature ratings:

  • Normal Service temperature of 90ºC
  • Emergency Overload of 130ºC
  • Short Circuit temperature of 250ºC
  • Specifications:

  • ASTM B230 Aluminum, 1350-H19 Wire for Electrical Purposes
  • ASTM B231 Standard Specification for Concentric-Lay-Stranded Aluminum 1350 Conductors
  • ASTM B400 Standard Specification for Compact Round Concentric-Lay-Stranded, Aluminum 1350 Conductors
  • ICEA S-70-547 Weather Resistant Polyethylene Covers Conductors
