KA1 is a type of wire made from an iron-chromium-aluminium alloy (FeCrAl) and is commonly used in heating elements and high-temperature applications. The wire has a diameter of 0.12mm, which is considered ultra-fine and can be used in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications due to its excellent resistance to oxidation and high-temperature strength.
KA1 wire has a high resistance to oxidation and corrosion at high temperatures and is commonly used in applications such as electric heating elements in home appliances, industrial furnaces, and heating elements in tobacco vaporizers. It is also used in the production of high-temperature resistance wire-wound resistors and in electronic cigarette coils.
KA1 wire is known for its high electrical resistance and good formability, it is also easy to work with and can be bent, twisted, and shaped without losing its resistance properties.
Additionally, 0.12mm wire can be used for jewellery making, such as for creating wire-wrapped pendants or earrings.
It is important to note that KA1 wire should be used only in dry environments, as it is not suitable for use in atmospheres containing chlorine or sulphur.
KA1 round wire, also known as FeCrAl wire, is a type of wire made from an iron-chromium-aluminium alloy and is commonly used in heating elements and high-temperature applications. Some of the most common uses for KA1 round wire include:
It is important to note that KA1 round wire should be used only in dry environments, as it is not suitable for use in atmospheres containing chlorine or sulphur.
FeCrAl (often known by the brand name “Kanthal” or “KA1” for certain types) is an iron-chromium-aluminum alloy used primarily for its high resistance and excellent oxidative properties at elevated temperatures.
The maximum continuous operating temperature of FeCrAl (KA1) wire is typically up to 1400°C (2550°F). However, the exact temperature may vary based on the specific alloy composition, the application it’s used in, and the environmental conditions. Always refer to the manufacturer’s specifications and guidelines when determining the appropriate temperature range for a particular wire or application.
FeCrAl (KA1) wire is generally considered to be slightly magnetic, especially at room temperature. However, its magnetic properties decrease as it’s heated. When the wire is at or above certain temperatures, it exhibits reduced magnetic permeability, making it essentially non-magnetic at those elevated temperatures.
It’s worth noting that while FeCrAl has some magnetic properties at room temperature, it’s not as magnetic as regular iron or some stainless steel alloys. If magnetic properties are a concern for a specific application, it’s essential to test the wire under the relevant conditions or consult the manufacturer’s data.
Yes, KA1 (FeCrAl) wire can be both used for welding and soldering, but there are certain considerations to keep in mind:
