What are Camouflage Conductors ?

Camouflaged Conductors are normal power line conductors which are painted with a specific color to blend in with the surrounding.  

This is particularly essential where environmental clearances are required for a power lines passing through a scenic environment or a forested area.

Normal conductors may have high contrast against the background environment and may cause visual disharmony.

Camouflaged lines are spray painted with a layer of polyurethane on the conductor surface.  The color is usually decided in consultation with the local administration and the environmental agency.  The coating is design to have UV and temperature stability.  The coating can be removed at the clamping location.
