About Nichrome 80

Nichrome 80 (Nickel 80%, Chromium 20%) resistance alloy is an ideal electrical heating material that can be used up to 2150℉ or 1250℃. It has suitable hot strength and extremely high electrical resistance. Nichrome 80 alloy forms a strong chromium oxide layer upon heating that provides outstanding oxidation resistance at elevated temperatures. It has high melting temperature about 1350oC. 

We offer Nichrome 80 at a wide specification range. The product applications include ignition coil, heating coil, low temperature heating in the electronic equipment, etc.

Industrial Nomenclatures: W.NR 2.486, nichrome resistance alloy, chromel A, Nichrome V, UNS N06003

Nichrome 80 Specification: ASTM-B-344, ASTM B267

Nichrome 80 Products Produced:

Nichrome 80 Wire Nichrome 80 Wire mesh Nichrome 80 Heating Coil Nichrome 80 Rod Nichrome 80 Strip/ Foil

Nichrome 80 Applications:

Electrical appliances, irons, water heaters, soldering apparatus, metal sheath tubular elements, cartridges, plastic moulds, aerospace industry, medical diagnostics and precision heating processes

Nichrome resistance wire is exclusively made to produce heat. It prevents the flow of current and transforms electric energy into heat energy. It is used in ovens, heaters, resistors, toasters and other industrial heating applications. So nichrome 80 is an indispensable part of the heating operations.
