chemical formula: Ni-Cr
( wire )
Pure Nichrome (Nickel-Chromium)
high resistance wire for making electrical igniters, heating coils, foam
cutters, high power resistors, etc. Nichrome wire quickly heats up to red hot when electrical current is applied.
We have 3 thicknesses to choose from, a thin
28 gauge, a medium
26 gauge, and a thick 22 gauge.
The 22 gauge wire is best for making foam cutters, the 26 gauge is best for heating elements and power resistors. Thin wire is best for Igniters. The thicker wire
requires more current than
thinner gauges to get hot, but is stronger and won't melt or beak as easy.
All sizes have a wide variety of uses.
