Nichrome 60 Wire
The Crazy Wire Company are best know as suppliers of top quality nichrome 60 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 flat 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.
The60 wire, specifically designed as 19 AWG with a flat wire profile measuring 1.15mm x 0.56mm, is a versatile and durable product suitable for a range of applications. Nickel-chromium alloy (NiCr60/15) wires are known for their high electrical resistance and excellent heat tolerance, making them ideal for use at high temperatures. Flat shapes provide an increased surface area, which is beneficial for applications requiring efficient heat distribution.
The wire is particularly useful in industrial heating applications, such as electric furnaces, toasters, and other household appliances that require consistent and reliable heat. The ability of this material to resist both oxidation and high temperatures ensures that it is an ideal choice for ceramic elements and ceramic supports in pottery kilns, where uniform distribution of heat is essential.
Specification of Wire:
- Diameter – 1.15mm x 0.56mm (21AWG)
- Ohms/m – 1.74
We also offer the Ni60 grade as flat wire too if required.

FAQs About This Wire
How Does Nichrome 60 Wire Perform In Electronic Resistors?
A number of key characteristics make Nichrome 60 wire an excellent material for electronic resistors. As a first characteristic, it has a high electrical resistivity, which is crucial for controlling the flow of current in electronic circuits. Due to its high resistivity, the wire is capable of effectively limiting current without requiring a large physical size, which makes it an ideal component for compact electronic devices.
A second advantage of Nichrome 60 wire is its high level of stability at a wide range of temperatures. When resistors are used in electronic devices that are subject to temperature fluctuations, this stability ensures that the device will perform consistently and will be reliable.
It is also durable and resistant to oxidation at high temperatures. Consequently, resistors made with Nichrome 60 wire can withstand the heat generated in electronic devices without deteriorating quickly, thereby extending their service life.
Nichrome 60 has a low temperature coefficient of resistance, which is another significant advantage. In electronic applications where even minor variations can affect performance, this characteristic is crucial for precision.
Can I Use Nichrome 60 Wire For Foam Cutting Applications?
- Heat Conductivity: Nichrome 60 wire heats up quickly and maintains a consistent temperature, which is essential for smooth and efficient foam cutting. The heat melts through the foam, allowing for precise and clean cuts.
- Temperature Resistance: This wire can withstand high temperatures without degrading. This makes it ideal for continuous or repeated use in foam cutting, where consistent heat is required over extended periods.
- Durability: Nichrome 60 wire is resistant to oxidation and corrosion, even at high temperatures. This means it will last longer and maintain its integrity even after multiple uses, providing a reliable cutting tool.
- Flexibility and Strength: The wire is flexible enough to be shaped into various forms for different cutting patterns, yet strong enough to hold its shape and tension during the cutting process.
- Electrical Resistance: Nichrome 60 wire has a high electrical resistance, which makes it easy to control the heat generated by adjusting the current. This is crucial for foam cutting where different densities and types of foam may require different temperatures for optimal cutting.
