    More power, less disruption in Chongqing, Mumbai and Sao Paolo.

    Using aluminum composite for the conductor core of a power line means you can carry twice the electrical power at half the weight—without disrupting existing infrastructure.

    • ACCR Technology

      Turns out using aluminum composite for the conductor core of a power line means as much as twice the electrical power at less weight -- all without disrupting existing infrastructure. Installed in 17 countries, including China, India and Brazil, 3M™ Aluminum Conductor Composite Reinforced (ACCR) technology brings more power to more people. It's as strong as a traditional steel core, but lighter, and with less sag under high energy loads. It means existing power line infrastructure can carry increased loads, helping global communities to thrive.
