Resistance heating strip
Strip in a wide range of alloys optimized for use in electrical resistance and high-temperature applications. Standard sizes range from thickness 0.10 to 3.5 mm (0.0039 to 0.1378 inch) and width 4-195 mm (0.157-7.68 inch).
Our wide range of resistance heating alloys in strip form makes it possible to select the most appropriate grade and size for each respective application, resulting in optimum end-product performance. The consistent resistivity from delivery to delivery facilitates trouble-free production.
Resistance heating alloys in strip form
|Type of alloy||Description|

|Nikrothal® NiCr alloys||High-resistivity nickel-chromium alloys for use up to 300ºC (570ºF).|
|Cuprothal® CuNi alloys||Medium- and low-resistivity copper-nickel alloys for use up to 150ºC (300ºF).|
* Kanthal® FeCrAl alloys are available as both conventional alloys and powder metallurgical alloys (Kanthal® APM).
Thickness: 0.10-4 mm (0.00394-0.157 inch)
Width: 4-200 mm (0.157-7.874 inch)
Other sizes can be delivered on request.
Standard resistance tolerance for strip is ± 5%, but strip with closer resistance tolerance can be delivered on request.
Kanthal® resistance heating strip is supplied in coils with an internal diameter of Ø 400 mm or in straightened lengths.
Each coil of strip is supplied with a label or tag showing alloy type, nominal size, tara and net weight, resistance Ω/m (Ω /ft) and charge number
