Standard Specification for Aluminum, Aluminum Alloy and Aluminum-Clad Steel Cable Shielding Stock


1.1 This specification covers selected aluminum, aluminum-alloy and aluminum clad steel cable shielding stock, both uncoated and coated, for applications such as electrostatic or electromagnetic shielding for insulated power, control, instrumentation and communication cables (including coaxial cable).

Note 1-See B694, Specification for Copper, Copper Alloy, and Copper-Clad Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip for Electrical Cable Shielding for related standards for copper-based shielding materials.

1.2 The materials covered are the following:

Type of Material A Coating Aluminum 1060 none Aluminum 1100 none Aluminum 1145 none Aluminum 1235 none Alloy 3003 none Aluminum 1060 polyolefin Aluminum 1100 polyolefin Aluminum 1145 polyolefin Aluminum 1235 polyolefin Alloy 3003 polyolefin Aluminum 1060 vinyl resin Aluminum 1100 vinyl resin Aluminum 1145 vinyl resin Aluminum 1235 vinyl resin Alloy 3003 vinyl resin Aluminum Clad Steel B none Aluminum Clad Steel B polyolefin A Aluminum designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1. The equivalent Unified Numbering System alloy designations are those shown preceded by A9, for example, A91100 for aluminum 1100 in accordance with Practice E 527. B Cladding ratio must be specified (see 5.4).

1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.5 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 12, of this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
