Nickel Chromium 80/20

Nickel Chromium alloy generally comprises nickel, chromium, iron, carbon, silicon, manganese and some other trace elements in small quantities. It has relatively high electrical-resistivity and resistance to oxidation at high temperatures. It is widely used in electric heating elements, rheostats and resistance units, while its excellent corrosion-resistance properties lends itself useful to applications requiring exposure to acids and other corrosive chemicals.

A quick fun fact to share, “We all have a bit of Nickel Chromium in our daily lives, in the form of Stainless Steel”.

Nicrolive 80

Comprises 80% nickel and 20% chromium. Its awe-inspiring ability to quickly heat up and rapidly cool down with a mere flick of an electrical switch, makes it ideally suited to the manufacture of heating elements for electrical home appliances. Its greater resistance properties and high melting-point justify its usage as a resistor in high-temperature applications, such as high-speed fuses, electric industrial furnaces, electric ranges and radiant heaters. It can have an operating temperature up to 1150°C (2100°F). It has a long service life and demonstrates non-magnetic properties.
