AFL's Alumoweld® overhead ground wire has excellent corrosion resistance.
AFL's Alumoweld® overhead ground wire has excellent corrosion resistance. Its strength and conductivity remain unchanged in any atmosphere where aluminum is satisfactory, especially those known to be corrosive from industrial or atmospheric conditions. Alumoweld also provides strength greater than or comparable to other overhead ground wires. For commonly used wire sizes, the tensile strength of the individual wire can approach 200,000 pounds per square inch. When used in a strand for overhead ground wire, this high strength permits greater span lengths, less sag, and heavier loads under storm loading conditions. Catalog number D4.12L19 is an Alumoweld Overhead Ground Wire for conductor size 19 no. 6 AWG, 2500 ft. reel.
