May also be called aluminum utility wire, utility wire, or aluminum cable.


This product is primarily used to secure components used in overhead transmission and distribution lines, including conductors and pin insulators. Aluminum tie wire is also suitable for grounding applications.


Concentrically applied HMWPE – LLDPE is standard, and HDPE is available upon request, sunlight resistant.
