Kanthal A is a ferritic iron-chromium-aluminium alloy (FeCrAl alloy) with high resistivity and good oxidation resistance for use at temperatures up to 1350°C (2460°F).

Kanthal A is typically used in industrial furnaces and home appliances. Examples of applications are elements embedded in ceramics for panel heaters, infrared heaters, warming plates, irons, ceramic pots, in cartridge heaters for liquid heating, storage heaters, in ceramic heaters for cooking plates, air guns, hobby kilns, radiators, in quartz tube heaters for space heating, toasters, toaster ovens, grills, industrial infrared dryers, coils on molded ceramic fibre for cooking plates with ceramic hobs.
