Ni60 Round Wire

The Crazy Wire Company are best know as suppliers of top quality Ni60 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 Ni60 round wire, with a diameter of 0.8mm (20 AWG), is a versatile and highly effective component widely used in various industrial and electronic applications. The high-quality Alloy Nichrome used in this wire is known for its durability and resistance to oxidation. Nichrome wire is specifically designed to offer reliable performance under high-temperature conditions. As a result of its excellent electrical resistivity and thermal conductivity, Ni60 wire is an excellent choice for heating elements in small electrical devices such as toasters, hair dryers, and small heaters.

In addition to its structural integrity and performance, Ni60 round wire can withstand extreme temperatures without compromising its integrity. It is therefore an excellent choice for applications such as laboratory furnaces and industrial heating systems where consistent heating is imperative. In addition, its corrosion and oxidation resistance ensures a longer lasting product, reducing the frequency of replacements and lowering long-term costs.

Specification of Wire:

FAQs About This Wire

How Should Ni60 Round Wire Be Stored To Maintain Its Quality?

  1. Dry Environment: Store the wire in a dry environment to prevent corrosion. Humidity can lead to oxidation, which can degrade the wire’s quality.
  2. Temperature-Controlled Setting: Avoid extremes of temperature. While Ni60 wire is resistant to high temperatures, prolonged exposure to very high or low temperatures during storage can affect its properties.
  3. Protective Packaging: Keep the wire in its original packaging or a protective covering. This helps to shield it from dust, moisture, and physical damage.
  4. Avoid Mechanical Stress: Store the wire in a manner that avoids kinking or bending. Excessive mechanical stress can cause deformations or micro-fractures.
  5. Chemical Safety: Store away from chemicals, especially corrosive ones. Even though Ni60 wire is corrosion-resistant, prolonged exposure to harsh chemicals can still have detrimental effects.
  6. Separation from Other Metals: If stored with different metals, ensure there is no direct contact to prevent galvanic corrosion.

How Does Ni60 Round Wire React To Prolonged Exposure To Heat?

Nichrome 60 round wire, crafted from a high-quality alloy, exhibits exceptional durability and resilience under prolonged heat exposure, a distinctive design characteristic. The wire sustains structural integrity and resists warping and deformation even at high temperatures, making it particularly heat resistant. Its oxidation resistance protects against corrosion and maintains effectiveness over extended periods of heat exposure. As for electrical properties, Ni60 wire’s resistivity increases slightly with temperature, which is anticipated and accounted for in multiple applications. The minimal thermal expansion of the material ensures dimensional stability, which is essential for precise applications. Due to the combination of these properties, Ni60 wire has an extended service life, even in environments with continuous heat exposure, making it an ideal material for high-temperature applications.
