For economical reasons it is desirable to replace copper by aluminium in electrical conductors. The low mechanical strength and poor contact properties of EC aluminium (electrical conductor grade aluminium with a conductivity of min 61% IACS) prevents its use in many applications. A new aluminium alloy intended for cables, conductors and magnet wire has been developed. This alloy possesses good mechanical properties and a high conductivity. A low and stable contact resistance is obtained in connections and terminations.
