FeCrAl Ribbon Wire Spool
The Crazy Wire Company are best known and long established as Europe’s preferred suppliers of top quality FeCrAl ribbon wire spool and we also have enormous stock levels at all times as we use this wire to weave our mesh products.
The FeCrAl ribbon wire spool, measuring 0.2mm x 0.6mm, is a specialised product designed for a variety of applications in the electronics and heating industries. The wire, made with iron, chromium, and aluminum (FeCrAl), is known for its exceptional resistance to corrosion and oxidation, making it a great choice for environments with long life expectancies. Its thin and flat nature, as well as its precise dimensions, ensure uniform heating and consistent performance, essential for electric heating elements in appliances, industrial furnaces, and kilns, for example.
Its high electrical resistivity and stable temperature performance also makes FeCrAl ribbon wire spools suitable for the production of potentiometers and resistors requiring precise electrical characteristics. High temperature resistance makes it a good choice for safety-critical applications, such as emergency fire alarms and electrical appliance safety cut-offs.

FAQs About This Wire
What Is The Electrical Resistivity Of FeCrAl Ribbon Wire Spool?
There is some variation in electrical resistivity among FeCrAl (Iron-Chromium-Aluminum) ribbon wires, depending on the alloy composition and manufacturing process. While FeCrAl alloys are commonly known for their high electrical resistivity, other metallic materials usually do not have this property. When room temperature, FeCrAl alloys typically show a resistivity of 1.35 to 1.50 microohm-meters (m).
Due to its high resistivity, FeCrAl ribbon wire is an excellent choice for heating elements and resistors that must have a controlled and consistent electrical resistance. 0.2mm x 0.6mm FeCrAl ribbon wire spool’s specific resistivity would be stated in the manufacturer’s product specifications, since alloy composition and wire dimensions influence it.
How Does FeCrAl Ribbon Wire Spool Handle Corrosive Environments?
- Chromium Content: Chromium, a major component in FeCrAl alloys, forms a passive oxide layer on the wire’s surface. This layer acts as a protective barrier, shielding the underlying metal from corrosive elements. This oxide layer is stable and adheres well to the metal, providing long-lasting protection.
- Aluminum Addition: Aluminum in the alloy enhances the formation of an alumina (Al2O3) layer, further improving the corrosion resistance. This layer is highly effective in preventing oxidation, especially at high temperatures.
- Low Iron Content: While iron is a part of FeCrAl alloys, its relatively lower proportion compared to chromium and aluminum reduces the likelihood of rust and corrosion that are typically associated with iron and steel materials.
- High-Temperature Resistance: FeCrAl ribbon wire maintains its structural integrity and resistive properties even at elevated temperatures. This is crucial in environments where both heat and corrosive materials are present, such as in industrial furnaces or heating elements exposed to harsh chemicals.
- Minimal Moisture Absorption: The alloy’s composition makes it less prone to absorbing moisture, a common cause of corrosion in metals.
