Kanthal D is a ferritic iron-chromium-aluminium alloy (FeCrAl alloy) for use at temperatures up to 1300°C (2370°F). The alloy is characterized by high resistivity and good oxidation resistance.

Kanthal D is used in home appliances and industrial furnaces. Typical applications in home appliances include metal sheathed tubular elements for dishwashers, elements embedded in ceramics for panel heaters, cartridge elements in metal dies, heating cables and rope heaters in defrosting and deicing elements, mica elements used in irons, quartz tube heaters for space heating, industrial infrared dryers, in coils on molded ceramic fibre for boiling plates with ceramic hobs, in bead insulated coils for panel heaters, in suspended coil elements for air heaters in laundry dryers.

In industrial applications Kanthal D is used in, for example, terminals to furnace elements, porcupine elements for air heating, and in furnace heating elements.
