Nickel Chromium Resistance Wire
If you’re in need of resistance wire for your manufacturing needs, you’ll appreciate Arcor Electronics’ selection of nickel chromium wire. Nickel chromium wire, commonly called nichrome wire, is one of the oldest recorded alloys used for resistance heating. This non-magnetic alloy, comprised of nickel, iron, and chromium, is highly resistant to electricity and is also resistance to oxidation at high temperatures, making it an ideal choice for applications such as in kilns as support wire or in hair dryer heating elements. Whether you need to use it as bridgewire, support wire, or as a heating element, it will be responsive and efficient.

Nickel Chromium Wire Options
Different Alloys and Resistance: At Arcor Electronics, we stock two resistance types of nichrome wire—Chromel A and Chromel C. We can also supply different alloys and configurations (ribbon) of nichrome wire with special request.
Special Shapes, Sizes, Custom Requests: We manufacture nichrome wire in many different shapes to suit exactly what you need them more – some of our common shapes are square or rounded wires. We can manufacture wires in specific sizes and lengths as well—we will work with you to construct the perfect wire for your needs.
Packaging: We offer various nichrome wire packaging options, such as spools, reels, stem packs, and coils.
Nichrome Wire’s Versatility
Because nichrome wire offers high electrical resistivity, and is resistant to corrosion, oxidation, and melting, it is usable in many different settings – from explosives to household appliances to arts and crafts. However, it is primarily used in electric heating elements, such as in ovens and toasters. It is also used in fireworks and explosives as a bridgewire, and many ceramics use nichrome wire for internal support systems, as it can withstand up to 1400 degrees Celsius.
