45/55 Ni Cu Resistance Wire

A Nickel-Copper alloy wire used mainly for its medium range electrical resistivity and very low temperature-coefficient of resistance. 45/55 Ni Cu Resistance Wire is also known as Constantan, Hecnum, Eureka, Ferry, Vernicon and Advance.

80/20 Ni Cr Resistance Wire

An alloy wire used at operating temperatures up to 1200°C (2200°F). Its chemical composition gives good oxidation resistance especially under conditions of frequent switching or wide temperature fluctuations. 80/20 Ni Cr Resistance Wire is also known as Nichrome / Nicrove V, Brightray C, Cronix 80, Nicrothal 80, Chromalloy, Chromel, and Gilphy 80.

Stainless Steel 1.4310

Stainless Steel 1.4310 is capable of high tensile strength following cold work.

Nickel® 270

A high purity grade of nickel that is made by powder metallurgy. Nickel® 270 is also known as HPM 270 Nickel.

Nickel® 212

Nickel strengthened with an addition of Manganese.

Nickel® 205

Nickel® 205 is similar to Nickel® 200, but has compositional adjustments to enhance its performance in electrical and electronic applications. Nickel® 205 is also known as VDM Nickel 99.6.

Nickel® 201

A commercially pure Nickel (typically 99.6% Nickel), Nickel 201 is essentially the same as Nickel 200, but with a lower Carbon content to prevent embrittlement by inter granular carbon at temperatures over 315°C (600°F). Lower carbon content also reduces hardness. Nickel® 201 is also known as Phyweld 201.

Nickel® 200

Nickel® 200 is commercially pure and has good mechanical properties and excellent corrosion resistance to alkalis i.e. Sodium hydroxide. It also has good electrical, thermal and magneto-strictive properties. Nickel® 200 is also known as Phyweld 200.

Nilo® K

A Nickel-Iron-Cobalt, controlled expansion alloy containing 29% Nickel. Its coefficient of expansion (which decreases with rising temperature to the inflection point), matches the expansion rate of borosilicate glasses and alumina ceramics. Nilo® K is also known as Kovar, Dilver, and Pernifer 2918.

Nilo® 52

Nilo 52 was designed for use with a variety of soft glasses. It is known for its almost constant coefficient of thermal expansion up to approx. 565°C (1050°F). Nilo® 52 is also known as Invar 52, Pernifer 50, and Glass Sealing 52

Nilo® 48

A Nickel-Iron, controlled expansion alloy containing 48% Nickel. Its coefficient of thermal expansion was designed to match that of soft lead and soda-lime glasses. This alloy also has a high inflection point. Nilo® 48 is also known as Invar 48 and Magnifer 50.

Nilo® 42

A Nickel-Iron, low expansion alloy containing 42% Nickel. It has a low and nominally constant coefficient of thermal expansion from room temperature to about 300°C (570°F). Nilo® 42 is also known as Invar 42, Pernifer 40, Dilaton 42, and Glass Sealing 42.
