OMEGA™ NIC80 wire is a resistance heating wire comprised of 80% Nickel and 20% Chromium. NIC80 wire is commonly used as a resistor at elevated temperatures. NI/CR-80/20 is essential for resistor elements in high temperature applications such as electric furnaces, electric ranges and radiant heaters operating at temperatures up to 1150°C (2100°F).

In addition to these qualities and standard uses, it has found wide application in technical applications due to its combination of high electrical resistance and its temperature coefficient of resistance much less than that of Nickel-Chrome 60.

Can I use this wire to restring a 277 volt 1 kw vav heater?

Asked by: Tony 78
Thank you for your inquiry. You will need to follow the Current Temperature Characteristics* (on datasheet) to see what wire size is suitable for those specifications.

Could I get an SDS for this product, please? (Item# NI80-032-200)

Asked by: Gabe76
Thank you for your inquiry. This product does not fall under the category that requires an SDS since it is bare Nichrome wire.

Is there a insulative coating on the wires?

Asked by: Evan11
Thank you for your inquiry Evan11. No, there is no insulative coating on the wires but it can get a thin layer of oxidation on it over time which does not affect its performance.
