Nichrome 80 Wire has a low temperature coefficient of resistance and a low change in resistance during its service life that combine to assure faster heat-up times, more uniform operating temperatures, and a longer useful life. Its excellent mechanical stability minimizes variables in element design, assures even stretch in coiled form, and eliminates problems of shrinkage, growth, sag, or distortion in use.
This wire is for repair and maintenance of electronic components. Typical applications for Master Wire Supply Nichrome 80 wire are: Industrial and hobby hot-wire foam cutters, internal support in ceramics, home and industrial heaters, diffusion heaters, dishwashers, cooking plates, electric blankets, hair dryers, kerosene-fired appliances, kettles, refrigerators, rice cookers, tumble dryers, washing machines, electrical heating elements in high-temperature furnaces for heat treatment, glass, steel, and electronics industries.
