Alloy Wire International manufacture the electrical resistance alloys ‘80/20 Nickel-Chrome’ and ‘45/55 Nickel-Copper’ in round wire and flat wire extensively for the production of:
Precision wire wound resistors
Dynamic braking resistors.
Vitreous enamelled resistors
Corrugated tape wound resistors
Fixed or adjustable resistors
Open wire wound resistors
First introduced into Alloy Wire International’s production over 70 years ago, the 80/20 Nickel-Chrome alloy was developed for use in electric heating elements. Today it is still considered by design engineers as the best electrical resistance wire for electric heating elements, which include anti-condensation heaters.
Our electrical resistance wire is manufactured in all our Shaped Wire in thicknesses from 0.025mm (.001”) to 10mm (.394”), or to a linear electrical resistance as high as 2130 Ohms/m (650 Ohms/ft).
We are proud that all of our products are manufactured under the exacting health & safety and environmental standards required by major contractors in this sector. Including certification to the following standards:
