The exceptionally high hot strength and excellent resistance to high-temperature corrosion of Kantha®l APM FeCrAl alloy opens up for new applications where metallic elements traditionally haven't been an alternative.

Advantages of using Kanthal® APM FeCrAl alloy

Exceptionally high hot strength resulting in:

  • Much better form stability of the heating element
  • Less need for element support
  • Low resistance change (ageing)
  • Longer element life

Dense and adherent oxide providing:

  • Excellent corrosion protection in most atmospheres
  • No scaling and impurities
  • Longer element life
