NiFe52 Wire

The Crazy Wire Company are best know as suppliers of top quality NiFe52 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.

NiFe52 wire, with a diameter of 0.4mm (26 AWG), is a specialised nickel wire consisting of 52% nickel. Because of its exceptional properties, this wire is highly suitable for a wide range of applications in many industries. High temperatures and corrosion resistance are two of its primary advantages, making it an ideal choice for environments that must withstand these factors. Furthermore, NiFe52 wire is known for its excellent thermal expansion properties, which ensure dimensional stability at a wide range of temperatures.

Electronics industries commonly use this wire because it has a consistent electrical resistivity. This is particularly beneficial when making precision resistors and potentiometers, where a stable resistance must be maintained across a wide temperature range. The resistance to high temperatures makes NiFe52 wire a popular choice for heating elements and thermocouples used in industrial heating.

Specification of Wire:

FAQs About This Wire

What Industries Most Commonly Use NiFe52 Wire?

  1. Electronics Industry: NiFe52 wire is extensively used for manufacturing precision resistors and potentiometers. Its consistent electrical resistivity makes it ideal for components that require stable electrical characteristics.
  2. Aerospace Industry: The high resistance to corrosion and ability to withstand extreme temperatures make NiFe52 wire suitable for aerospace applications. It is used in the manufacture of various components that are exposed to harsh environmental conditions.
  3. Industrial Heating: In this sector, NiFe52 wire is often used to produce heating elements and thermocouples. Its high-temperature endurance allows it to function effectively in industrial heating systems.
  4. Scientific Research: Laboratories and research facilities use NiFe52 wire in sensors and equipment that demand accuracy and consistency under extreme conditions. Its stability and resistance properties are crucial for precise scientific measurements.
  5. Manufacturing of Laboratory Equipment: The wire’s properties make it suitable for creating various laboratory instruments and devices that require minimal dimensional changes in response to temperature fluctuations.

How Does NiFe52 Wire Perform In Humid Conditions?

NiFe52 wire performs well in humid conditions, primarily due to its high nickel content that greatly enhances corrosion resistance. When humidity is high, materials are prone to corrosion, which can compromise their structural integrity and electrical properties. The unique composition of NiFe52 wire, with 52% nickel, provides an effective defense against such corrosion. With this resistance, the wire retains its physical and electrical properties over time, even in moist or damp conditions. The stability of NiFe52 wire in different environmental conditions makes it ideal for applications that experience humidity on a regular basis, such as in industrial, marine, and outdoor settings. Its durability under these conditions not only extends the wire’s lifespan, but also ensures consistency in performance, making it a preferred material where reliability is crucial despite challenging environmental conditions.
