Our nickel-chromium alloy resistance heating wire is now available coiled for ready use. Coiled heating wire is used in many high-temperature applications, including electric furnaces, radiant heating, and air heating.
NIC80 is an alloy of 80% nickel and 20% chromium and represents the highest standard in materials for use in elevated temperature environments. It is useable at temperatures up to 1150°C (2100°F).
NIC60 contains 60% nickel and 16% chromium, with the balance iron, and can be used up to 1000°C (1850°F). It is the benchmark material, most widely accepted and employed in electrical heating.
Both of these alloys also provide excellent corrosion resistance.
Coils using 18 to 30 AWG wire with 25 to 100 turns per inch are standard. Custom coil dimensions are also available.
