Ni60 Wire

The Crazy Wire Company are best know as suppliers of top quality Ni60 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 wire, made of Nichrome (Nickel-Chromium), is a highly versatile and efficient material commonly used in various industrial and consumer applications. This wire is available in 0.9mm diameter, equivalent to 19 American Wire Gauge (AWG), and offers the perfect balance between strength and flexibility, making it ideal for many applications. The steel’s unique composition of 60% Nickel and 40% Chromium confers excellent resistance to oxidation and corrosion, which is particularly beneficial in environments requiring durability and long life.

High electrical resistivity is one of the major benefits of Ni60 wire, making it ideal for heating elements in appliances like toasters, ovens, and hair dryers. High temperatures can be tolerated by the material without it degrading quickly, which is how it has become so widespread in these applications. Additionally, resistance wire for laboratory furnaces and industrial heating processes is manufactured with its resistance properties.

Specification of Wire:

  • Diameter – 0.9mm (900 Micron – 19AWG)

FAQs About This Wire

How To Properly Store And Handle Ni60 Wire?

Storage and handling of Ni60 wire properly are essential for ensuring its longevity and performance. Handle the wire with clean, dry hands or tools to avoid contaminating its surface, and store it in a cool, dry environment to prevent corrosion. Whenever coiling or uncoiling the wire, make sure it is done gently to prevent kinks or bends that could weaken it. The wire should be kept in its original packaging or a protective container to prevent dust, dirt, and physical damage. Moreover, avoid exposing the wire to harsh chemicals or solvents and extreme temperatures, since these will alter its properties. The use of safety gear such as gloves and eye protection is recommended when manipulating wires. It is also recommended to inspect the wire regularly for signs of wear, corrosion, or damage, especially when stored for extended periods of time.

What Are The Common Uses Of Ni60 Wire In Electronics?

Ni60 wire, known for its high electrical resistivity and thermal stability, finds several common uses in the field of electronics. Primarily, it’s used in the manufacture of heating elements due to its ability to withstand high temperatures and maintain performance over time. This makes it ideal for use in small-scale heating applications like soldering irons, where precise temperature control is necessary.

In addition to heating elements, Ni60 wire is also employed in the construction of resistors, particularly in situations where a stable resistance is required over a range of temperatures. Its consistency in resistance values at varying temperatures is crucial for the reliability of electronic circuits.

Another notable use of Ni60 wire in electronics is in the fabrication of thermocouples. These are devices used for temperature measurement, where the wire’s ability to maintain stability and conduct heat effectively is vital.

Furthermore, Ni60 wire is utilised in various types of sensors within electronic devices. These sensors often rely on the wire’s predictable change in resistance with temperature changes, making it an excellent material for precision sensing applications.
