Ni80 Wire Spool

The Crazy Wire Company are best know as suppliers of top quality ni80 wire spool. We have enormous stock levels at all times, as we use this wire to weave our marine grade woven mesh products. Our brilliant staff are experts in producing our spools of round wire on our 6 rapid action winding machines. All spools are produced to carry a little extra length to make up for any waste when handling the product.

The ni80 wire spool is a high-quality 0.06mm (42 AWG) Nickel Chrome wire designed for various applications demanding precision and durability. An alloy primarily composed of nickel and chromium, it is highly electrically conductive, corrosion-resistant, and has a high melting point. With the ni80 wire spool, you can expect consistent performance, enhanced durability, and a broad range of applications. There is a particular preference for this wire spool in industries requiring accurate resistance measurements, such as electronics, where it is often used for resistors and heating elements. In the jewelry industry, due to its malleability and resistance to oxidation, it is a preferred choice since it can be shaped and wound easily. Its thermal stability makes it suitable for applications that require controlled heating, such as home appliances.

A 0.06mm Nichrome 80 wire is a thin wire made of an alloy composed of 80% nickel and 20% chromium. It is often used as a heating element in small electronic devices and appliances due to its high resistance to corrosion, high temperature resistance, and low electrical resistance.

FAQs About This Wire

What Is Ni80?

Nichrome 80 (Ni80) is an alloy composed of 80% nickel and 20% chromium. It is widely used as a heating element in a variety of applications such as electric heaters, and industrial furnaces due to its high resistance to oxidation and corrosion, high temperature resistance, and low electrical resistance.

Can You Be Allergic To Ni80?

Yes, it is possible to be allergic to nickel, which is a component of Ni80 wire (nickel-chromium alloy wire). Some people may have an allergic reaction to nickel when it comes into contact with their skin, causing itching, redness, and other symptoms. If you suspect you may have a nickel allergy, it is recommended that you speak with a doctor to get a proper diagnosis and determine the best course of action.

Is Ni80 Wire Temp Control?

Yes, Ni80 (Nickel 80%) is a commonly used material for temperature control. Ni80 is a nickel-chromium alloy that is known for its high resistance and low temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR), making it well suited for use in temperature control electrical devices.

Is Nichrome Better Than KA1?

Whether Nichrome or KA1 is better depends on the specific application and the desired properties.

Nichrome has a higher resistance to oxidation and corrosion compared to KA1, making it a better choice for applications where high temperature and corrosive environments are present. It also has a lower electrical resistance, making it heat up faster.

On the other hand, KA1 is a ferritic iron-chromium-aluminium (FeCrAl) alloy, which has a higher maximum operating temperature compared to Nichrome, making it a better choice for high temperature applications. It also has a lower temperature coefficient of resistance, which means that its resistance remains relatively constant over a wide range of temperatures.

Both Nichrome and KA1 have their own advantages and disadvantages, and the choice between the two will depend on the specific requirements of the application.
