Kanthal D Wire Mesh

kanthal wire meshThe Kanthal (FeCrAl alloy) wire mesh is known for its ability to withstand high temperatures and having great electric resistance. The kanthal (Iron-chromium-aluminum alloy) wire cloth has high very high heat resistance feature.The the maximum temperature of up to 1400 degrees,also have long time usage,high surface load,good oxidation resistance, high resistivity.
It is used in heating elements, these are ferritic iron-chromium-aluminum alloys used primarily for electrical resistance heating elements and similar devices. Kanthal Wire Mesh offers advantages of higher temperature, longer life, and higher resistivity over the oldest resistance heating alloy 80 nickel,20 chromium.
Weave Pattern: plain weave, twill weave and dutch weave.
Benefits:
1) Good workability and weldability;
2) Lower raw-material cost;
3) Good ductility and lower density;
4) Low temperature coefficient of electric resistance;
5) High operating temperature and good oxidation resistance;
6) Good corrosion resistance under high temperature, especially under the atmosphere containing sulfides.

Packing: waterproof paper with plastic cloth,then put into wooden box.
Kanthal wire mesh: plain weave from 1mesh to 200mesh,twill weave from 200mesh to 540mesh,plain dutch weave from 10 x 50mesh to 100 x 1200mesh and twill dutch weave from 20 x 150mesh to 400 x 2800mesh.
