INTRODUCTION
Leader Cable Industry Berhad, incorporated in 1976 has grown steadily to become the
country’s single largest cable manufacturer today since its 1990 merger with Universal Cable
(M) Berhad under the flagship of its parent, Leader Universal Holdings Berhad (LEADER).

Through its far sighted planning and unceasing product and service innovation, LCIB has
successfully cultivated a manufacturing profile of an extensive range of cable and wire
products.

From household cables, XLPE cables, telecommunication cables for both domestic
and export markets, LCIB has achieved a distinguished reputation as a leading
supplier of power and telecommunication cables to major corporations both local
and foreign.

This catalogue serves as a guide to LCIB’s manufacturing processes and


standards in the manufacturing of aluminium conductors, cables and
OPGW.

ALUMINIUM &
ALLUMINIUM
ALLOY
CONDUCTORS
Aluminium & aluminium alloy conductors are the preferred and dominant
conductors in several areas of power transmission and distribution. The
major areas dominated by aluminium and aluminium alloy conductors are
non-insulated overhead power transmission, insulated overhead power
transmission and non overhead power distribution.

3
CONDUCTORS
This dominance is due to the excellent overall properties of aluminium and aluminium alloy
conductors. Aluminium and aluminium alloy conductors offer good conductivity, light weight,
excellent resistance to corrosion, good bending properties, greater tensile strength than
copper and excellent compatibility with most common insulation used by the wire and cable
industry.

These conductors now command a significant share of the insulated, interior wire
market particularly in the larger dimensions (i.e heavy current installations) where
weight and ease of handling are important factors.

ALUMINIUM
This trend is due to their excellent overall properties. Principally these
are listed as :

1. Conductivity
In excess of twice that of copper by unit weight.

2. Strength
A range of strengths from dead soft to that of mild steel,depending on the
required temperature of aluminium alloy.

3. Workability
Permitting a wide range of processing from wire drawing to stranding. This offers
excellent bend quality.

4. Light Weight
Ease of handling, low installation costs, longer spans and more distance between pull-
ins.

5. Corrosion Resistance
Most industrial, marine and chemical atmospheres cause corrosion. In addition, the
corrosion resistance of all alloys can be further improved by anodizing.

6. Compatibility With Insulation


Does not adhere to or combine with usual insulating materials. No tin-coating required:
clean stripping.

4
ALUMINIUM
CONDUCTORS
Aluminium and aluminium alloy electrical conductors are made by various processes from
wire-drawing (i.e rod breakdown to fine wire) to wire stranding from a large diameter of
redraw aluminium and aluminium alloy rods.

With strong and consistent emphasis on quality, Leader Cable continues to strive for
improvement in the production of our aluminium and aluminium alloy conductors to better
meet customer requirements and expectations.

5
BARE ALL ALUMINIUM CONDUCTOR (AAC)
The stranded Bare All Aluminium Conductor (AAC) are made up of concentric-lay-stranded aluminium wires only. The
conductor may be made up of 7, 19, 37, 61 or more wires in 1, 2, 3, 4 or mre layers around a central wire. Each successive
layer shall have six more wires than the layer immediately beneath. For a given cross-sectional area, the conductor becomes
more flexible as the number of wires is increased (with a corresponding decrease in size of each wire).

When All Aluminium Conductors are to be used in overheaded lines, full hard drawn temper wires are used. The illustration
below show some typical stranding patterns.

BARE ALL ALUMINIUM ALLOY CONDUCTOR
(BARE AAAC)
Aluminium alloy (AAAC) contains a small percentage (about 0.6%) of silicon and magnesium elements. It provides several
benefits for overhead lines.

(i) Strength - About twice that of aluminium 1350 (EC)

(ii) Weight - 20% (approx.) lighter than ACSR conductor of equal diameter.

(iii) Corrosion resistance - It has a high resistance to atmospheric corrosion which is suitable for coastal and industrial
areas.

(iv) Surface hardness - AAAC’s surface is significantly harder than aluminium 1350. It is lesss liable to
damage during installation which is an important advantage of EHV transmission lines where
corona and radio interference is a major consideration.

(v) Termination - Much simpler jointing accessories required compared to ACSR.

(vi) AC Resistance - AAAC is a non-magnetic material. It doed not exhibit the magnetic core losses found in ACSR
conductor.

BARE ALUMINIUM CONDUCTOR STEEL
REINFORCED (ACSR)
ACSR is a composite, concentrically stranded conductor in which the light weight and good conductivity of aluminium are
combined with the high tensile strength of steel. It is composed of one or more layers of EC grade hard-drawn aluminium wires
helically stranded around an inner core of high strength zinc-coated steel wires. The inner steel core may be a single zinc-
coated steel wire, or concentrically stranded of one or more layer of zinc-coated steel wires.

ACSR has long been widely used as overhead high tension transmission lines and has an established reputation for
economy and dependability. The illustration below shows typical standard sizes and stranding patterns.

PVC - COVERED ALUMINIUM CONDUCTORS
The PVC - covered conductors have been developed primarily to
give protection to telecommunication lines which are
crossed by power lines and to give protection to the public from low
voltage lines in case of accidental contact for short
periods.

The PVC - covered overhead power lines have also been found
useful in corrosive atmospheres and for preventing faults due to
birds and trees. For such purposes, thickness of covering other
than those specified in this catalogue may be used. The conductors
are sometimes referred to as “Weather - Resistant Line Wire” and
may consist of a single solid
wire, or all aluminium stranded conductors (AAC) over which a
covering has been applied.

The insulation thickness of Type 8 is intended for use where the


operating voltage does not exceed 650 V r.m.s. between any two
conductors or 250 V r.m.s. between any conductor and earth.
