Ni80 Nickel Crome
The Crazy Wire Company are well known as suppliers of top quality Ni80 nickel crome wire. We have enormous stock levels at all times, as we use this wire to weave our high specification 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 0.14mm (35 AWG) Ni80 nickelresistance wire is a high-quality, durable alloy wire renowned for its superior conductivity and consistent heating properties. Professionals and enthusiasts choose this nickel-chromium wire for its resistance to oxidation at elevated temperatures, making it an ideal choice for applications requiring precision temperature control. This wire offers a balance between malleability and robustness, making coiling easy without compromising its structural integrity thanks to its 0.14mm diameter. Nickel chrome alloy is renowned for its stability, which ensures even heating across the wire’s surface, preventing potential hotspots that can cause inconsistent results in different applications. The uniformity of heat distribution is especially important in applications such as precision heating elements, ceramic kiln elements, and specialty electronics. Additionally, corrosion resistance extends the material’s lifespan, reducing the need to replace it often.

FAQs About This Wire
What Household Items Have Nichrome Wire?
Nichrome wire is a common material used in a variety of household items. Some of the most common household items that contain nichrome wire include:
- Toasters: The heating elements in toasters are often made of nichrome wire.
- Hair dryers: Many hair dryers use nichrome wire as the heating element.
- Coffee makers: Some coffee makers use nichrome wire in their heating elements to keep the coffee warm.
- Irons: The heating element in many irons is made of nichrome wire.
- Space heaters: Some space heaters use nichrome wire as the heating element.
- Microwave ovens: Nichrome wire is often used in the heating elements of microwave ovens.
- Hot water heaters: Some hot water heaters use nichrome wire as the heating element.
- Cooking ranges: Some cooking ranges use nichrome wire in their heating elements.
Is Nichrome A High Resistance Wire?
Yes, nichrome is a high resistance wire. Nichrome is an alloy of nickel and chromium, which provides it with a high resistance to electrical current flow. This property makes it ideal for use in heating elements and resistance wire for temperature control and sensing applications. In fact, the resistance of nichrome wire is typically much higher than that of other metals, such as copper or aluminium. This high resistance, combined with its good ductility and high melting point, makes nichrome a popular choice for use in high temperature applications where resistance to heat and corrosion are important factors.
Why Is Nichrome Used For Flame Tests But Not Other Wires?
Nichrome is often used for flame tests because of its unique properties that make it well-suited for this purpose. The most important of these properties are:
High resistance: Nichrome wire has a high resistance to electrical current flow, which makes it a good choice for heating elements. When an electrical current is passed through the wire, it heats up, which can be used to create a flame.
High melting point: Nichrome has a high melting point, which makes it resistant to degradation in high temperature environments. This makes it ideal for use in flame tests, where the wire is heated to produce a flame.
Good ductility: Nichrome is a ductile material, which means it can be easily formed into the desired shape. This makes it easy to manipulate the wire into the desired configuration for use in flame tests.
Corrosion resistance: Nichrome is resistant to corrosion, which makes it a good choice for use in environments where it is exposed to harsh chemicals and fumes.
Why Doesn’t Nickel Crome Wire Act Like An Inductor?
Nichrome wire does not act like an inductor because it is a resistance wire, not an inductive wire. An inductor is a passive electrical component that stores energy in a magnetic field when current flows through it. The magnetic field induces a voltage in the wire, which opposes the change in current that created the magnetic field in the first place. This property is known as inductance.
Nichrome wire, on the other hand, is a resistance wire. When an electrical current flows through it, it resists the flow of the current, which results in the wire heating up. This property is known as resistance. Resistance and inductance are two different properties that have different effects on electrical circuits.
