20 AWG Ni60 Flat Clapton
The 20 AWG Ni60 Flat Clapton wire, sized at 20/36 AWG, is a specialised wire designed for various applications that require precision and reliability. Compared to traditional round wires, this product has a flat Clapton structure, which provides an enhanced surface area. As a result of its increased surface area, the Ni60 Flat Clapton wire 20 AWG is more efficient and uniform in heat distribution, making it particularly suitable for applications that require consistent heating.
With a resistance of 2.00 Ω/m, this wire allows for precise operations, providing a balance between conductivity and control. AWG stands for the gauge of the core wire (20 AWG) and the outer wrapping wire (36 AWG), which indicate a robust yet flexible design. It is ideal for scenarios where it is essential to combine strength with pliability.
The Ni60 Flat Clapton wire in 20 AWG comes in a 5-metre spool that is approximately 15 feet long, providing ample material for multiple applications. Especially beneficial for those requiring continuous lengths of wire for their projects, this length ensures minimal waste and maximum efficiency.

How Does The Flat Clapton Design Affect The Wire’s Electrical Properties?
Flat Clapton design of the Ni60 20 AWG wire significantly enhances its electrical properties by increasing surface area, leading to more efficient and uniform heat distribution. The wire heats up quickly and evenly as a result of this design feature, making it perfect for applications that require consistent heating. As a result of the Flat Clapton wire’s unique structure, it offers a lower resistance per unit length than standard single-strand wires, which facilitates better electron flow. The design also improves the wire’s mechanical properties, such as flexibility and strength, resulting in a wire capable of enduring greater stress without breaking.
Furthermore, the Flat Clapton design aids in dissipation of heat, which is crucial to preventing overheating, especially in applications with high currents. Although this design may result in minimal changes in capacitance and inductance, these are usually not significant enough to change most applications. The Flat Clapton design of the Ni60 wire makes it a versatile and efficient choice for a variety of electrical and heating applications.
