ACAR (Aluminium Conductor Alloy Reinforced )

Aluminium Conductor Alloy Reinforced (ACAR) is formed by concentrically stranded wires of Aluminium 1350 on high strength Aluminium -Magnesium –Silicon (AlMgSi) alloy core. The number of wires of Aluminum1350 & AlMgSi alloy depends on the cable design. Though the general design comprises a stranded core of AlMgSi alloy strand, in certain cable constructions, the wires of AlMgSi alloy strands can be distributed in layers throughout the Aluminium 1350 strands. ACAR has got a better mechanical and electrical properties as compared to an equivalent ACSR, AAC or AAAC. A very good balance between the mechanical and electrical properties therefore makes ACAR the best choice where the ampacity, strength and light weight are the main consideration of the line design. These conductors are extensively used in overhead transmission and distribution lines. Midal can manufacture & supply ACAR on Non-returnable wooden/steel reels or Returnable steel reels.

Special Features:

  • Improved strength to weight ratio
  • Better mechanical properties
  • Improved electrical characteristics
  • Excellent resistance to corrosion


ACAR manufactured by Midal meets or exceeds the requirements of all international standards like ASTM, AS, BS, CSA, DIN, IEC, NFC, SS -etc
