Bekaert’s wires or strands for ACSR conductors are made from galvanized, high carbon, steel wire. They are suitable for reinforcing overhead power conductors. The wire is used as either single-center wire or processed into a multiple wire strand. To help your production process, our  advice and support wherever you are located.

Powering up your operation

Bekaert overhead power conductor cores consist of 7or 19 high-carbon, class A galvanized steel wires that can be left or right stranded.  Our wire helps create an ACSR conductor that can span extra-long distances without mechanical detriment.  It is the result of a high strength-to-weight ratio combined with low elongation.

Customized solutions and personal approach

Bekaert ACSR strands are provided on wooden drums for a smooth installation. For customers with stranding capabilities, Bekaert offers wires on coil and spoolless cores. Our global team of experts is at your disposal to provide advice or support. To guarantee the uncompromised quality of our products, all Bekaert ACSR wire conforms to several internationally recognized standards, including ASTM B498, AS 3607, BS EN 50189 and IEC888.

Safe and durable solutions

Our wires and strands for ACSR conductor coatings provide corrosion resistance and thermal conductivity. The Bezinal® coating is best for conductors that operate at higher temperatures.  Your high-voltage power lines will operate at a higher capacity.
