Ribbon FeCrAl Wire
The Crazy Wire Company are best known and long established as Europe’s preferred suppliers of top quality ribbon FeCrAl wire and we also have enormous stock levels at all times as we use this wire to weave our mesh products.
The ribbon FeCrAl wire, measuring 1mm in width and 0.05mm in thickness, is a highly versatile and efficient material used in various applications. KA1 is an alloy known for its exceptional heat resistance and durability. This makes this wire suitable for applications that require prolonged exposure to high temperatures. The ribbon-like shape of the heating element provides a larger surface area than traditional round wires. This makes heat distribution more even and improving efficiency. It is especially useful in industrial heaters, electric furnaces, and kilns because of its uniform heating property.
Ribbon FeCrAl wire has an extremely thin yet sturdy structure, making it ideal for applications like laboratory furnaces where consistency and accuracy are essential. In electronics, this wire is used in resistors and heating coils. This provides stable resistance and reliability no matter how much usage is made of it. Its resistance to corrosion and oxidation at high temperatures further extends its lifespan, reducing maintenance requirements.

- Environmental and Safety Equipment: Its reliability makes it suitable for use in smoke detectors and safety alarms.
- Food Industry: Ribbon FeCrAl wire is also used in appliances like toasters and industrial ovens, where consistent performance and energy efficiency are vital.
Are There Any Special Storage Requirements For Ribbon FeCrAl Wire?
- Dry Environment: It’s important to store the wire in a dry environment to prevent any moisture-induced corrosion or oxidation. Even though FeCrAl wire is resistant to oxidation at high temperatures, prolonged exposure to moisture at room temperature can still have detrimental effects.
- Temperature Control: While the wire is designed to withstand high temperatures during use, storing it in a temperature-controlled environment can help maintain its structural integrity and prevent any premature degradation.
- Avoid Direct Sunlight: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause temperature fluctuations and potential degradation of the material, so it’s advisable to store it in a shaded or covered area.
- Proper Packaging: The wire should be kept in its original packaging or a suitable alternative to protect it from dust, debris, and physical damage. If the wire is in a spooled form, ensure that it’s securely wound to avoid tangling or kinks.
- Safe Handling Measures: As with any fine industrial material, safe handling should be considered. Gloves and appropriate tools should be used to handle the wire to prevent any injury or damage to the wire.
- Chemical Exposure: Store the wire away from corrosive chemicals or environments where it might be exposed to chemical fumes, as certain chemicals might react with the metal alloy.
