AGY Holdings LLC (Aiken, S.C.) revealed that its S-1 HM glass fibers are being used in the core of composite reinforced aluminum conductors for high-voltage electrical transmission lines. AmpStar (Harbor City, Calif.), a wholly owned subsidiary of G.I.F.T. LLC (the successor trustee to W. Brandt Goldsworthy and Assoc.), has incorporated S-1 HM glass to strengthen the core of its CRAC cables, because the high-strength, high-modulus glass fiber allows the use of higher conductive annealed aluminum, increasing ampacity by up to 100 percent, and delivers better heat and mechanical properties with less line sag at a competitive price.
