Nichrome N80 Resistance Wire Packs

Argus Heating stock a large range of Nichrome N80 resistance wire conveniently pre-packed in bags of 5 m, 10 m, 20 m, and 30 m lengths.

Wire can be cut and re-reeled if you require longer lengths (over 30 m). Kanthal A1 and D are also available on request.

Features and benefits

  • N80 is mechanically stronger and has better corrosion resistance than Kanthal A1 or D.
  • High emissivity allows for lower element temperature across the same surface load, compared to other resistance wires.


  • ‍Alloy: 80% Nickel and 20% Chromium.


Typically used for:

  • Cutting polystyrene, foam, Styrofoam, and plastic film in large quantities.  
  • Intermittent high temperature applications such as electric, night store, and cartridge heaters.
  • Heating elements exposed to moisture such a freeze protection, wind turbines, and heated hoses.
Argus Heating stock a large range of resistance wire, including Nichrome N80. The most common sizes of N80 are available in a range of conveniently pre-packed bags.
