26 AWG KA1 Double Clapton
The 26 AWG KA1 Double Clapton wire offers a specialised solution for projects requiring precision heating and electrical resistance. FeCrAl A1 wire is constructed with a dual 26-gauge core and 32-gauge wrap, resulting in wide surface areas for even heating distribution and a resistance of 4.36 ohms per meter. This material is supplied on a 5-meter spool, which provides ample material for a wide range of uses. As a result of the wire’s balanced thickness and Clapton construction, it is both versatile and reliable for use in electronic projects and custom heating elements. This KA1 Double Clapton ensures stable performance in both professional and hobbyist applications thanks to its ease of use and high melting point.

FAQs About This Product
What Is The Best Way To Cut KA1 Double Clapton Wire?
A pair of flush wire cutters or sharp scissors designed for cutting metal are the best tools to use to cut KA1 Double Clapton wire. It is important to use tools like these in order to ensure a clean and precise cut without fraying the wire or damaging the intricate Clapton wrapping on the wire. A 90-degree angle should be taken when snipping the wire to maintain its structural integrity. Keep the wire steady for measurement, then measure the desired length and snip cleanly at a 90-degree angle. To ensure safety and prolong the life of your tools, never cut too close to an edge, and never force a cut if the tool doesn’t seem sharp enough, as this can damage the wire and the cutters.
How Does KA1 Double Clapton Wire Ensure Consistent Performance?
The KA1 Double Clapton wire ensures consistent performance through its precise construction and material properties. The double Clapton configuration, which involves wrapping a thinner gauge wire (32 AWG) around a dual-strand of a thicker base wire (26 AWG), increases the surface area that heats up. This design facilitates even heat distribution and allows for better control of the temperature when the wire is in use, which is critical in applications where stability is paramount.
FeCrAl A1, the material used for this wire, is known for its high resistivity and excellent oxidation resistance, even at high temperatures. This means it does not degrade quickly, ensuring that the resistance remains stable over time and use. The result is a wire that provides reliable and predictable electrical characteristics, essential for precision work where consistency is key. Furthermore, KA1’s ability to withstand repeated thermal cycling without significant deterioration contributes to the longevity and uniform performance of the KA1 Double Clapton wire.
