Nichrome 60 Round Wire

The Crazy Wire Company are best know as suppliers of top quality Nichrome 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 nichrome 60 round wire, with a thickness of 0.6mm (22 AWG), is a versatile and reliable product suitable for various industrial and hobbyist applications. The wire is manufactured from an alloy of nickel (approximately 60%) and chromium, and it is known for its high electrical resistivity and durability, making it a great choice for high-temperature environments. The material’s resistance to oxidation and stability at high temperatures up to 1150°C (2102°F) ensure long life and consistent performance.

This wire is used primarily in the manufacture of heating elements. With its high melting point and ability to withstand repeated heating and cooling cycles, nichrome 60 round wire is ideal for elements in toasters, ovens, and kilns. Furthermore, this wire finds extensive use in laboratory settings, particularly in experiments involving temperature control and thermal processing.

Specification of Wire:

  • Diameter – 0.6mm (600 Micron – 22AWG)
  • Ohms/m – 3.93

We also offer Ni60 grade as flat wire too if required.

FAQs About This Wire

How To Cut Nichrome 60 Round Wire Safely?

  1. Wear Protective Gear: Always wear safety glasses to protect your eyes from any flying fragments. Gloves are also recommended to protect your hands from sharp edges.
  2. Use the Right Tools: A pair of heavy-duty wire cutters or diagonal pliers are ideal for cutting nichrome wire. Ensure the tool is in good condition and suitable for the wire gauge.
  3. Secure the Wire: Hold the wire firmly, but not so tightly that it deforms. You can use a vise or clamp to keep the wire steady, especially for thicker gauges.
  4. Measure and Mark: Before cutting, measure the desired length and mark it clearly on the wire. This helps in making precise cuts and reduces waste.
  5. Cut at a Right Angle: Make sure to cut perpendicular to the wire to avoid fraying or splintering the ends. A clean, straight cut ensures better performance in its application.
  6. Smooth the Ends: After cutting, it’s advisable to smooth the ends of the wire using a file or sandpaper. This removes any sharp edges that could cause injury or damage.
  7. Clean Up: Collect any wire fragments or offcuts and dispose of them properly to prevent any injury or accidental ingestion by pets or children.
  8. Check the Wire: After cutting, inspect the wire to ensure it hasn’t been damaged or overly stressed at the cut point.
  9. Store Safely: When not in use, store the wire and cutting tools safely to prevent accidents.

What Are The Electrical Resistivity Properties Of Nichrome 60?

A nickel-chromium alloy, Nichrome 60 has exceptional electrical resistivity properties, making it suitable for a variety of specialised uses. A high resistivity makes it suitable for applications where resistance to electric current is required, such as heating elements and resistors. Among its notable features is its adaptability over a wide temperature range, thus making it ideal for applications that involve fluctuating temperatures. Due to its moderate temperature coefficient of resistance, the alloy’s resistance increases at a predictable rate with rising temperatures, essential for precision heating.

At room temperature, Nichrome 60 has a resistivity of around 1.11 ohm-mm2/m, though it varies slightly with composition and manufacture. Because it’s capable of maintaining resistance at high temperatures, such as 1150°C or 2102°F, it is particularly valuable in environments that require high-temperature tolerance, such as industrial heating systems. The combination of high resistance, temperature stability, and durability under heat stresses makes Nichrome 60 round wire very popular in technical and industrial applications.
