Flat Wire Ni60
The Crazy Wire Company are best know as suppliers of top quality flat wire ni60. 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.
Flat wire Ni60, specifically a 21 AWG (NiCr60/15) type measuring 0.91mm x 0.45mm, is a versatile and high-performance product designed for a range of applications where precision and durability are key. Nickel-chromium alloy flat wire (60% nickel, 15% chromium, and other elements) is known for its excellent corrosion and oxidation resistance. This makes it suitable for environments where these factors are of concern. As a result of the specific dimensions of this wire, 0.91mm in width and 0.45mm in thickness, it provides a broad surface area that is ideal for applications that require efficient heat distribution and electrical conductivity.
The primary benefit of flat wire Ni60 is its improved strength and stability compared to round wire, making it a preferred choice for industries that require these qualities. Electrical conductivity is one of the most important characteristics of this wire in the electronics industry, especially in components where space is limited and precision is critical. Due to its flat profile, coil designs can be more compact, which is beneficial in electronic devices that require space savings.

- Industrial Heating: Flat Wire Ni60 is ideal for manufacturing heating elements due to its excellent heat-resistant properties. It is used in both industrial and domestic heating applications, such as in furnaces and heating systems.
- Consumer Electronics: In consumer electronics, this wire is used in devices where efficient heat dissipation and electrical conductivity are necessary. Its flat profile is particularly beneficial in compact devices.
- Scientific and Laboratory Equipment: The wire’s thermal stability and electrical properties make it suitable for various scientific instruments and laboratory equipment, especially in high-temperature and precision settings.
How Durable Is Flat Wire Ni60 Compared To Other Materials?
As a nickel-chromium alloy, Flat Wire Ni60 is exceptionally durable, especially in challenging environments. Its high nickel content makes it resistant to corrosion and oxidation, which is crucial in industries that face harsh conditions. This is why it is more durable than carbon steel or aluminum, which are more prone to corrosion or oxidation. A flat wire’s shape also contributes to its structural integrity.
The flat surface provides better stability and resistance to mechanical stress, so it is less likely to deform under load than round wire. High temperatures do not affect its strength or flexibility, as opposed to materials that may lose their properties under similar conditions. The consistent performance under thermal stress of FR4 ensures long-term reliability, outperforming many conventional wiring materials in electronic applications. Flat Wire Ni60’s unique combination of corrosion resistance, thermal stability, and mechanical robustness makes it an ideal choice for a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications.
