About Kanthal Wire

We supply Kanthal Wire. Our product is different from all other FeCrAl alloy products made in China. It is made with powder-metallurgical, dispersion-strengthened alloy, using the same technique with sandvik (the original manufacturer of Kanthal alloys). Basing on our experimental data, it is suitable for use at temperatures up to 1400°C (2500°F); it is better than Kanthal D wire and Kanthal A-1 wire on every aspect, such as the working temperature, anti-oxidization ability, plasticity, working life, etc. Honestly, it is still not as good as Kanthal APM wire, but it is definitely a good choice for many applications considering its price.

 

To prove it, the best way is trying it yourself; we can provide sample for free. Our product can save you a lot of cost.
