Multi-Stranded NiCr80/20 Wire
Multi-Stranded NiCr80/20% wires is a Resistance Alloy used in electrical heating application. It is recommended for use in dry air applications up to 1150°C (2100°F)with good hot strength. It is an alloy of nickel and chromium with high electrical resistance; used for resistance heating elements. Nichrome 80/20 is an ideal material, because it has relatively high resistance and forms an adherent layer of chromium oxide when it is heated for the first time. Material beneath the wire will not oxidize, preventing the wire from breaking or burning out.
