Our Solid Sector Aluminium Conductors are fabricated for low, medium and high voltage power cables used in underground applications. Solid Sector Aluminium Conductors are known for their low cost, simplicity and durability.

The conductors are produced via a continuous rotary extrusion process, in sections that range from 95mm² to 300mm² with specifications according to BS 3988: 1970.

application and advantages
Type Application Advantages

Aluminium EC 1350

Widely used for electrical conductor as wire and solid shaped conductor

ConductivityIn excess of twice that of copper by unit weight

Light WeightDue to its proven light weight and excellent bend qualities make our EC Aluminium favorable for further customization

WorkabilityPermitting a wide range of processing from wire drawing to extrusion or rolling. Excellent bend quality. Aluminium possesses high elongation that eases the cold work process

Corrosion ResistanceA tough, protective oxide coating quickly forms on freshly exposed aluminium and it does not thicken significantly from continued exposure to air

CreepLike all metal under sustained stress, there is a gradual deformation over a term of years. With aluminium, design factors take it into account

Compatibility with InsulationDoes not adhere to or combine with usual insulating materials. No tin-coating required; clean stripping
