Nickel Chrome 60 Round Wire

The Crazy Wire Company are best know as suppliers of top quality nickel chrome 60 round wire. We have enormous stock levels at all times, as we use this wire to weave our top quality 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 nickel chrome 60 round wire, with a diameter of 0.4mm (26 AWG), is a versatile and high-performance material widely used in various industrial and commercial applications. As a result of its nickel and chromium blend, the wire offers exceptional oxidation and corrosion resistance. Due to the nickel component, it is durable and strong. This makes it an ideal fit for environments where reliability is essential. Chromium, on the other hand, enhances the wire’s resistance to high temperatures, making it an ideal choice for heat-sensitive applications.

Nickel chrome 60 round wire is commonly used to manufacture resistors and heating elements. It can withstand high temperatures without degrading, making it ideal for appliances like toasters, ovens, and industrial furnaces. Furthermore, its corrosion resistance ensures durability and consistent performance, reducing the need for frequent replacements.

FAQs About This Wire

What Industries Commonly Use Nickel Chrome 60 Round Wire?

  1. Electronics Industry: Due to its excellent electrical conductivity and stability, this wire is used in electronic components, especially where precise temperature control is essential.
  2. Automotive Industry: It’s used in the automotive sector for manufacturing sensor components and resistors. It benefits from its durability and thermal stability.
  3. Heating and Appliances: Nickel chrome 60 round wire is commonly found in heating elements of appliances like toasters, ovens, and industrial furnaces. Its high-temperature resistance makes it ideal for these applications.
  4. Industrial Manufacturing: In various manufacturing processes, this wire is used due to its strength and resistance to harsh conditions, including exposure to chemicals and extreme temperatures.
  5. Scientific Research and Laboratories: In research environments, the wire’s reliability under high temperatures and corrosive conditions is highly valued, often used in experimental setups and lab equipment.
  6. Construction and Building: It may also find applications in the construction industry, particularly in areas where materials are exposed to challenging environmental conditions.
  7. Aerospace Industry: Given its high-temperature tolerance and strength, it is likely used in aerospace applications where materials must endure extreme operating conditions.

What Are The Temperature Limits For Nickel Chrome 60 Round Wire?

The temperature limits of nickel chrome 60 round wire are crucial to its performance, especially in applications that require high temperature resistance. The wire can typically be operated continuously at temperatures up to approximately 1150°C (2100°F). Nickel and chromium, two elements that contribute to the wire’s exceptional thermal resistance, contribute to this high threshold. For industrial furnaces and heating elements, the chromium element improves the wire’s structural integrity and resistance to oxidation at elevated temperatures. While the wire can operate effectively at these high temperatures, its longevity and performance might be negatively affected over time, especially in environments with fluctuating temperatures or additional stresses like mechanical loads or corrosive materials. The actual performance limits of nickel chrome 60 round wire may vary based on specific application conditions, despite its remarkable heat resistance.
