Why did aluminum conduit gradually replace steel conduit?

Rigid aluminum conduit provides lightweight, nonmagnetic wiring solutions for dry, wet, exposed, concealed or hazardous locations that comply with the National Electrical Code (NEC).

Designed for Quality and Efficiency

At Lonwow, we leverage our experience and the latest technologies to meet your quality, time and budget requirements. We offer rigid aluminum conduit from 6063 aluminum alloy, T-1 temper — a “marine grade” alloy that ensures strength and corrosion resistance. The lightweight design allows for easy installation, saving you time and money.

Green and Sustainable

Rigid aluminum conduit contains recycled aluminum and provides decades of reliable service. Conductors can be easily removed and new conductors inserted. Additional circuits may be added in the same conduit, as permitted by the code. Rigid aluminum conduit can be almost totally recycled at the end of its life.

Tested and Certified for Safety

Our rigid aluminum conduit is UL Listed to UL 6A. It is manufactured in accordance with ANSI C80.5. The pitch of aluminum conduit threads conforms to the American National Standard for Pipe Threads, General Purpose (Inch), ANSI / ASME B1.20.1. The taper of threads is 3/4 inch per foot (1 in 16). Rigid aluminum conduit offers good mechanical protection. It naturally resists most corrosive atmospheres and industrial environments, so extra coatings may not be required.

Use aluminum in place of steel in virtually all locations. Choose UL 6A aluminum rigid conduit to realize true savings with lower costs, labor savings, and improved electrical and worker safety.
