Our 20 AWG nichrome wire is perfect for professionals and hobbyists alike. This particular resistance wire is Nichrome 80, an alloy nominally composed of 80 percent nickel and 20 percent chromium. This mixture gives the wire great mechanical strength and resistance to oxidation at high temperatures. Our wire conforms to ASTM B344 specifications, and is rated for continuous use at up to 1200°C (2192°F).

You can find nichrome 80 used in electronic cigarette & vape coils, hot wire cutters for foam/plastics/rubber, and tools & appliances that utilize an enclosed heating element, such as soldering irons, hair straighteners, clothing irons, toasters, and water heaters. Remington Industries offers this resistance wire in 7 different spool sizes and 10 different wire gauges (from 14 to 32 AWG) to best fit your project.

    Nickel chromium resistance wire is perfect

    To whom it may concern,
    Depending on your business, you are a very lucky person for reading these comments. If you are the type of person who likes to bend plastic and fabricate with it, then you are not just lucky, you are extremely fortunate. The reason is that you can stop looking for solutions for making heat strips. This exact type of resistance wire which is really ridiculously inexpensive compared to previous solutions, is all you'll ever need.

    I could go on and on about this wire. Let's start with performance. Using this wire and about $10 in materials, I made a heat strip that far out performs my previous model that uses fiberglass encased heat strip. Keep in mind this cost does not include the price of a variac which you must get if you're going to use this stuff. The wire is thin enough to make it very convenient to store, but thick enough to stand up to the abuse of tension, current and heat. The wire must be used under approximately 5 to 10 pounds of tension. It is certainly strong enough to hold up to this use. I am still fine-tuning my heat strip and going through this wire in the process. Because it is so cheap, it is no problem to just get more. The wire is so versatile that I intend to try to make the bending shapes and patterns. I am very excited about using this wire and will keep you posted on my progress. Bottom line: if you bend plastic then get this wire.
