0.5mm x 0.1mm Flat Wire Ni80
The flat wire Ni80 is a specialised Nichrome ribbon wire, notable for its unique composition and technical specifications, making it suitable for a range of applications. This wire, with a diameter of 0.5mm x 0.1mm, offers a resistance of 21.91 Ohms/m, aligning well with requirements for precision in various electrical and heating applications.
Ni80 Nichrome ribbon wire’s composition predominantly consists of Nickel (Ni), with the rest of the alloy featuring 20.0 – 23.0% Chromium (Cr) and less than 1.0% Iron (Fe). This composition contributes to its distinctive properties, such as high electrical resistance and excellent corrosion resistance, extending the wire’s lifespan and reliability in challenging environments.
A key characteristic of this wire is its maximum continuous service temperature, which reaches up to 1200 degrees, indicating its suitability for high-temperature applications. This aspect is particularly beneficial in industrial settings where materials are required to withstand extreme heat without compromising performance or safety.
The micrographic structure of the Ni80 Nichrome ribbon wire is austenite, which is known for its durability and strength. Additionally, the wire is nonmagnetic, a property that is essential in certain electronic and industrial applications where magnetic interference needs to be minimised.
The flat wire Ni80’s high electrical resistance makes it ideal for use in electrical heating elements, resistors, and other components where precise heat generation is necessary. Its high corrosion resistance also ensures that it remains effective and reliable in environments where corrosion could be a concern, such as in chemical processing or outdoor applications.

FAQs About This Wire
How Does The Electrical Resistance Of Flat Ribbon Wire Ni80 Affect Its Performance?
The electrical resistance of flat wire Ni80, measured at 21.91 Ohms/m, significantly impacts its performance, especially in applications requiring precise heat generation and control. This high resistance level is key to its functionality in various uses:
- Heat Generation: In heating elements, the resistance converts electrical energy into heat. The higher the resistance, the more heat is generated for a given current, making the Ni80 efficient in applications where controlled heating is necessary.
- Energy Efficiency: Devices using Ni80 can be more energy-efficient. The wire’s resistance ensures that a significant amount of electrical energy is converted into heat, reducing waste.
- Temperature Control: The predictable resistance value allows for precise temperature control in applications, crucial in processes where maintaining specific temperatures is essential.
- Stability: High resistance provides stability in electrical circuits, ensuring that the wire can consistently perform under varying electrical loads without significant changes in performance.
- Safety: The predictable resistance also contributes to safety. It prevents overheating by ensuring that the wire only generates the amount of heat it is designed to handle.
What Are The Main Applications Of Nichrome Ribbon Wire?
It’s commonly used in heating elements for industrial furnaces, household appliances like toasters, hair dryers, and space heaters, owing to its ability to withstand high temperatures and efficiently convert electricity into heat.
Due to its high and stable resistance, the wire is perfectly suited to making precision resistors in electronic circuits, ensuring accurate functioning and an efficient use of energy in the process.
In hot wire cutters, nichrome ribbon wire is often used for precision cutting of materials such as polystyrene foam, because of its ability to maintain a consistent level of heat during the cutting process.
As a result of its resistance to oxidation, as well as its stability at high temperatures, this material is ideal for laboratory heating applications, such as hot plates and mantle heaters.
