Project Description

Nichrome 80

Nichrome 80 is a nickel-chromium resistance alloy for operating temperatures up to 1200℃. It has highly corrosion resistance and lower coefficient of resistance than other heater element alloys. Nichrome 80 is the most ideal resistance heating alloy.

Temperature Factor of Resistivity



  • Great ductility
  • Excellent workability and weldability under high temperature
  • High and stable resistivity
  • Surface oxidation resistance
  • Sufficient high temperature strength
  • Working temperature up 1200℃


Nichrome 80 is used for electric heating elements in home appliances and industrial furnaces.

  • Electrical parts and electronic components
  • Electric heating elements (home & industrial use)
  • Industrial furnaces up to 1200℃
  • Heating cables, mats and cords
  • Flat irons
  • Ironing machines
  • Water heaters
  • Plastic moulding dies
  • Soldering irons
  • Metal sheathed tubular elements and cartridge elements

Based on client’s requirement, we have succeeded in producing Х20Н80-Н. Through adding Zr element around 0.2-0.5%, it can increase alloy working temperature, and strength. It is mostly used in high temperature industry furnace.
