Thermothal® KM is an austenitic nickel-chromium alloy (NiCr alloy) used for the positive leg of thermocouples type E or type K. Thermothal® KM is an alloy optimized for manufacturing of mineral insulated cable. In standard condition the Thermothal® KM is delivered in stabilized condition. The tabulated list describes the temperature characteristic in standard condition. Thermocouples of type K have good resistance to oxidation, and better than other base metal combinations. Thermocouples of type E have the largest emf output of any common thermocouple.

Thermothal KM cannot be exposed to reducing or alternately oxidizing and reducing atmospheres or vacuum.
