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, a nickel wire with 52% nickel content, is an essential component in various applications across multiple industries due to its unique properties. 0.5mm in diameter, equivalent to 24 American Wire Gauge (AWG), this wire offers a balance of strength and ductility, making it ideal for precise applications. In addition to its high nickel content, it also offers excellent corrosion resistance, especially in harsh environments, thus ensuring longevity and reliability in its applications. It is suitable for use in high-temperature applications, such as heating elements, thermocouples, and industrial furnaces, because it does not oxidise at elevated temperatures.
In the manufacture of precision resistors and potentiometers, where accurate and stable resistance values are crucial, the wire’s consistent electrical resistivity is useful. Furthermore, its thermal expansion properties are similar to many types of glass. This makes it the perfect choice for hermetic sealing, which is crucial to ensuring the integrity of components in vacuum or pressure environments.
Specification of Wire:
- Diameter – 0.5mm (500 Micron – 24AWG)
- Ohms/m – 2.19

FAQs About This Wire
Can NiFe52 Wire Be Used In High-Temperature Environments?
Yes, NiFe52 wire can be used in high-temperature environments. Because 52% of its composition is nickel, it has an excellent resistance to oxidation and corrosion under high temperature conditions. It is therefore ideal for applications such as heating elements, industrial furnaces, and thermocouples where high temperatures are expected, because NiFe52 can maintain its integrity and performance. The fact that it is able to tolerate high temperatures without suffering significant degradation in its physical and chemical properties makes it suitable for a wide range of industrial and technological applications.
Can NiFe52 Wire Be Recycled Or Repurposed After Use?
Yes, NiFe52 wire can be recycled or repurposed after use. Nickel and its alloys, like NiFe52, are valuable materials that can be reclaimed and reused in various applications. The recycling process typically involves collecting and melting down the used wire. This can then be purified and formed into new wire or other nickel-based products. Recycling not only conserves the raw materials but also reduces environmental impact by minimising the need for new mining and processing. However, the specific recyclability of NiFe52 may depend on its condition after use and any contaminants it may have been exposed to. It’s always advisable to consult with a recycling specialist or the manufacturer for the best practices in recycling NiFe52 wire.
