SHANGHAI, Jun. 5 (SMM) –Speculation is running high that aluminum will replace copper in wire & cable now that China’s new standards for aluminum alloy cable
will take effect September 1.
However, the new standards will do little in boosting aluminum applications in wire & cable, Shanghai Metals Market believes.
State Grid and Southern Power Grid, the country’s major wire & cable consumers, largely use high-voltage aluminum alloy power transmission lines. But the new standards mainly target low-voltage aluminum cable.
Moreover, it might be difficult for users to accept low-voltage aluminum cable, out of concerns in costs, installation and maintenance.
