Nickel Chrome 60 Wire

The Crazy Wire Company are best know as suppliers of top quality Nickel Chrome 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.

The nickel chrome 60 wire, specifically the 20 AWG NiCr60/15 flat wire measuring 1.03mm x 0.5mm, is a versatile and reliable choice for various industrial and commercial applications. Nickel-chromium alloys are known for their strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion, making them suitable for environments requiring reliable performance under high temperatures. As a result of its specific composition, NiCr60/15 is an excellent combination of strength and flexibility, enhancing its suitability for precision work.

Among the most common uses of this wire is in the manufacture of electric heating elements. Due to its resistance to oxidation and corrosion at elevated temperatures, it is an excellent choice for heaters, toasters, and kilns that require constant heat distribution. As well as providing better heat transfer, the flat shape of the wire allows for easy installation in a variety of configurations and allows it to be easily stored.

FAQs About This Wire

How Does The Wire Perform In Extreme Temperature Changes?

Nickel Chrome 60 wire, specifically the 20 AWG NiCr60/15 variety, is designed to excel in environments with extreme temperature changes. Its high melting point ensures it withstands temperatures that would typically compromise other materials. A low coefficient of thermal expansion is critical to this wire’s performance, as it minimises dimensional changes under temperature fluctuations, maintaining its structural integrity. Additionally, its thermal conductivity, while not as high as some other metals, is sufficient for effective heat distribution, particularly important in heating applications. Moreover, its resistance to oxidation at high temperatures enhances its durability and longevity, making it an ideal choice for applications like electric heating elements and industrial furnaces where consistent performance and reliability are paramount in harsh thermal conditions.

Is Nickel Chrome 60 Wire Resistant To Corrosion?

Yes, Nickel Chrome 60 wire, including the 20 AWG NiCr60/15 variant, exhibits notable resistance to corrosion. Nickel-chromium alloys are highly corrosion resistant, making them ideal for use in environments where corrosive elements may be present. In the alloy, chromium forms an oxide layer on the wire’s surface, which protects it from corrosive agents. When the wire is exposed to high humidity, certain chemicals, or oxidising environments, this feature is particularly valuable. As a result of the alloy’s stability under these conditions, it prevents degradation, thus ensuring its durability and performance over time. Because Nickel Chrome 60 wire resists corrosion, it is used in a variety of industrial and commercial applications, such as heating systems, automotive components, and aerospace manufacturing, where durability and reliability are of utmost importance.
