Nickel Copper Alloy Wire

Nickel Copper Alloy Wire

Copper Nickel Alloys

Principally destined for the manufacturing of low temperatures electric resistances so as heating cables, shunts, resistances for automobile, they have a maximum operating temperature of 752°F.
They do not therefore intervene in the field of resistances for industrial furnaces.

Those are alloys of chemical composition copper + nickel with addition of manganese with a low resistivity (from 231.5 to 23.6 Ohm.mm2/ft).

The most known, CuNi 44 (also called Constantan) presents the advantage of a very low temperature coefficient.

Their advantages are the following:

  • Very good resistance to corrosion
  • Very good malleability
  • Very good solderability
