It is produced by process of continuous casting and rolling with Clesim technology, with 9.5mm diameter and weighing between 1.000-1.400kg per coil. It is intended for processing by drawing process when producing electrical conductors and additional welding material. Its chemical composition and technical characteristics are as prescribed by the international standards.
Utility companies have used aluminum wire for electrical transmission in power grids since the late 1800s to the early 1900s. It has cost and weight advantages over copper wires. Aluminum wire in power transmission and distribution applications is still the preferred material today.
Aluminum provides a better conductivity to weight ratio and therefore is also used for wiring power grids, including overhead power transmission lines and local power distribution lines, as well as for power wiring of airplanes.
