Due to COVID-19 and the uncertainty over whether we can keep up with demand we have taken the decision to cease spooling until we can be sure of a steady period of production time. We don’t want to take on work that we can’t fulfil. Therefore, we are only able to sell the spools we have already made.
We’re aware that there is some confusion about this wire. We have been informed that many of you refer to this wire based on the FeCrAl content and not the Nickel content.
We require total consistency and we use the Nickel content as the main descriptor for our products.
This wire is NiFe48 because it has approx 48% Nickel content. We do this to keep consistency with the other Nickel wires – Ni80 = 80% Nickel, Ni60 = 60% Nickel, NiFe70 = 70 Nickel etc.
We apologise if this is at odds with how others refer to this wire, but we’re sure that you can see why this is the case.
