FeCrAl Ribbon Wire
The Crazy Wire Company are best known and long established as Europe’s preferred suppliers of top quality FeCrAl ribbon wire and we also have enormous stock levels at all times as we use this wire to weave our mesh products.
The KA1 FeCrAl ribbon wire, measuring 1mm x 0.2mm, is a high-quality alloy known for its exceptional durability and resistance to oxidation. This ribbon wire, whose metal composition includes iron, chromium, and aluminum, offers excellent performance in various applications. The material’s electrical resistance and stability at elevated temperatures make it ideal for use in industrial furnaces and household appliances such as toasters and hair dryers. The flat ribbon shape of the wire makes it more efficient at distributing heat and responding faster to changes in temperature than round wires of the same diameter.
A feature such as this is particularly useful in applications requiring precise control over temperatures. Corrosion-resistant and able to withstand frequent temperature fluctuations, this wire is ideal for outdoor heating systems and automotive applications. KA1 FeCrAl ribbon wire is often used in electronic cigarettes and vaporisers. It also has applications in the aerospace industry for components exposed to high temperatures. It is a cost-effective choice for manufacturers and hobbyists alike because of its versatility and long service life.
Specification of this FeCrAl Ribbon Wire:
- Diameter – 1mm x 0.2mm
- Ohms/ft – 7.25
We also offer more of this KA1 wire too if required.

FAQs About This Wire
Is Fecral Ribbon Wire Resistant To Corrosion And Oxidation?
Yes, FeCrAl ribbon wire is notably resistant to corrosion and oxidation. Iron-Chromium-Aluminum (FeCrAl) alloy wires are particularly resistant to corrosion, enhancing their durability and longevity in challenging conditions. In the alloy, the chromium component forms a layer of chromium oxide on the surface, which protects it from corrosion. The high temperature and corrosive properties of this material make it especially suitable for use in environments where high temperatures may occur. As well as improving its oxidation resistance, aluminum in the alloy ensures that the wire maintains its integrity and performance over time. The combination of these properties makes FeCrAl ribbon wire the ideal choice for applications where reliability and longevity are crucial, such as heating elements and industrial furnaces, which are exposed to high temperatures and potentially corrosive gases.
Is Fecral Ribbon Wire Easy To Install And Use?
Yes, FeCrAl ribbon wire is generally easy to install and use, making it a preferred choice for various applications. Its flat ribbon shape contributes to its ease of handling and installation. This shape allows for more straightforward alignment and fixation in various devices, compared to round wires which might require more effort to position correctly. Additionally, the flexibility of the FeCrAl alloy aids in the installation process, as it can be bent or shaped as needed without significant risk of breaking or losing its structural integrity.
In terms of usage, FeCrAl ribbon wire’s consistent performance under varying temperatures and environments makes it user-friendly. It doesn’t demand extensive maintenance or frequent replacements, which is beneficial for both industrial applications and consumer products. The wire’s high electrical resistivity and thermal stability also mean that it can be used effectively in applications requiring precise temperature control without needing complex control systems.
However, it’s important to note that while the installation and use of FeCrAl ribbon wire are straightforward, appropriate safety precautions and adherence to specific installation guidelines are essential, especially in high-temperature applications. This ensures both the longevity of the wire and the safety of the users.
