Nichrome 200

The Crazy Wire Company are well known as suppliers of top quality Nichrome 200 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.

With its 0.32mm soft nichrome 200 wire, tempered with 99.6% nickel, the wire meticulously meets the unique requirements in numerous fields for professionals and hobbyists alike. A 28 AWG wire made from Nichrome 200 shows a commendable synergy of durability and functionality due to its outstanding electrical resistivity and resistance to oxidation and chemical corrosion at high temperatures. Especially in applications involving electric heating elements, such as heat sealing equipment, foam cutting tools, and kiln heaters, the wire’s consistent resistive properties are crucial.

Creating wire-loop apparatus used for inoculating cultures or flame-testing substances in the laboratory relies on nichrome wire’s thermal stability. Further, nichrome 200 is used as a resistor material in electronic components for its stable resistive characteristics over a wide temperature range. Especially in bead-making and glass-working, wire is a crucial tool in creating structurally stable heating elements that can handle high temperatures effectively. Its versatility and reliability have enabled the integration of this wire into various industries, ensuring consistency and dependability in performance across a wide range of usage scenarios, facilitating controlled heating and electrical resistance applications.

FAQs About This Wire

Can Nichrome 200 Wire Be Used For Laboratory Use?

Yes, nichrome 200 wire can be utilised effectively for laboratory use due to its excellent properties of high electrical resistivity, stability, and resistance to oxidation at elevated temperatures. Since Nichrome 200 withstands and maintains stability under significant thermal stress, it is frequently used for wire-loop apparatus. These are used for flame tests and inoculating cultures in laboratories. The predictable resistance behavior of nichrome wire and its ability to withstand prolonged exposure to high temperatures make it an advantageous material for experimental setups requiring controlled heating. This makes it suitable for applications requiring robust, durable wire frameworks or controlled, consistent heating in laboratory environments.

Is Nichrome 200 Eco-friendly?

Nichrome 200’s eco-friendliness can be considered in several aspects, primarily focusing on its durability and recyclability. The alloy, known for its robustness and ability to withstand significant wear and tear, offers a longevity that can minimise the need for frequent replacements, thereby reducing resource consumption over time. Moreover, nichrome can be recycled, providing an avenue for old, unused, or surplus wire to be reprocessed and reused in the creation of new products instead of ending up in landfill, thereby mitigating potential environmental impacts. However, it’s pertinent to note that like the manufacturing of any metal alloy, the production of nichrome 200 does involve energy-intensive processes, and considerations around mining and resource extraction could also be factored into its overall environmental impact.

Always, appropriate handling, use, and disposal, in alignment with regulatory guidelines and best practices, should be considered to ensure that the use of nichrome 200 is as eco-friendly as possible.

Could Nichrome 200 Wire Be Used In Artistic Applications?

Absolutely, nichrome 200 wire is a well-regarded material in various artistic applications, particularly those involving high-temperature processes. In bead-making and glass-working arts, nichrome 200 wire is often employed to create mandrels. These are rods used to shape and hold beads as they are being formed. Its ability to withstand high temperatures without sagging or melting makes it an ideal choice for artists who work with molten glass.

Additionally, nichrome wire is often used in kilns, acting as a support or structural element for sculptures during the firing process. In the realm of crafting and jewelry-making, its malleability, resistance to oxidation, and ability to endure heat treatments make nichrome 200 wire a versatile and reliable material. This wire facilitates the creation of intricate designs, structures, and forms that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also structurally sound, providing artists with a resilient and consistent medium to bring their visions to life.
