Abstract : A new super high strength No. 18 Copperweld conductor has been developed. With this an improved parallel Teleprene drop wire having a nominal breaking load of 600 pounds is being produced commercially. This drop wire can be installed in substantially longer spans and with smaller sags than the previous standard drop wire. It has ability to withstand much heavier loads and therefore has greater margin of safety than the older product. The new wire significantly extends the range of conditions under which drop wire can be used satisfactorily. (Author)
