The conductors of the overhead electrical networks have a shining surface that has a visual impact in the surrounding landscape, especially if recently installed, or even after many years in mountainous areas with low pollution.
De Angeli Prodotti proposes a surface treatment of the outer layer of the conductor that allows to mitigate this phenomenon.
De Angeli Prodotti designed and developed an Eco-friendly process of coloring the outer layer of the conductors with a very thin layer of paint (15 20 µm), perfectly adherent and weather-resistant.
The colors most used are green and black, but the process is applicable to any color, to conductors in any formation and diameter and the installation does not need particular difficulties and precautions.
The coloring of the outer surface of the conductors has two main advantages:
1. a significant reduction in the visual impact of the overhead power line, especially in wooded environments, parks and protected areas, resulting in better harmony with the external environment and greater acceptability;
2. an increase in surface emissivity (up to 0,8) which, in case of HTLS (High Thermal Low Sag) conductors, increases the ampacity at the same operating temperature.
