80/20 Ni Cr Resistance Wire (For Springs)
Nickel Base Wire for wire springs, flat springs and wire products
An alloy wire used at operating temperatures up to 1200°C (2200°F). Its chemical composition gives good oxidation resistance especially under conditions of frequent switching or wide temperature fluctuations.
80/20 Ni Cr Resistance Wire is also known as Nichrome / Nicrove V, Brightray C, Cronix 80, Nicrothal 80, Chromalloy, Chromel, and Gilphy 80.
- Low expansion alloy. Maintains near constant dimensions over the range of normal atmospheric temperatures.
- Low coefficient of expansion from cryogenic temperatures to about +500°C (+930°F). Retains strength and toughness at cryogenic
Heating elements in both domestic and industrial appliances and in control resistors
