Due to COVID-19 and the uncertainty over whether we can keep up with demand we have taken the decision to cease spooling until we can be sure of a steady period of production time. We don’t want to take on work that we can’t fulfil. Therefore, we are only able to sell the spools we have already made.
All existing orders will be processed as expected.
We will announce the re-introduction of this range in due course.

Ni80 is widely used for its electrical heating elements so is suitable for applications that require resistance to oxidation.
Ni80 is also very widely used for hot cutting applications.
Flat wire is made by taking some of The Crazy Wire Company’s round wire and flattening it into the desired size. Our flat wire quality is absolutely unbeatable.
