About Nichrome 80

Nichrome 80 (Nickel 80%, Chromium 20%) resistance alloy is an ideal electrical heating material that can be used up to 2150oF or 1200oC. It has suitable hot strength and extremely high electrical resistance. Nichrome 80 alloy (Strip and Wire) produces a strong chromium oxide layer upon heating that provides outstanding oxidation resistance at the elevated temperatures. It has high melting temperature about 1350oC. Nichrome wire offers a special resistance range of 5500 ohm/m.

We offer fine gauge wire for a broad range of applications including low temperature heating in the electronic equipments such as variable frequency controller for example potentiometers, pressure transducers, detonators, ceramic resistance, wire wound resistance, lead wire and also strings for musical instruments.

Nichrome 80 resistance heating alloy is suitable for reconstructing your atomizer and is particularly excellent for sub-ohm coils. It has smaller resistance per unit length than Kanthal hence it heats up more quickly and is recommended over Kanthal for various applications.

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

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.

Heanjia Super-Metals is a leading manufacturer and supplier of the best quality fine gauge wires in Bright Annealed Nichrome 80/20. They are suitable for use in the low to high temperature heating appliances. Our high quality wires are fully safe for use. We supply these products without any delay and at the competitive price. Following our customer’s response, we undertake the special product improvisation that enables us to develop long term relationship with them.
