Item # W000K0051, JELLIFF Alloy K and K-A1 Electrical Resistance Alloy

These heating alloys, for operating temperatures up to 1200°C (2200°F), are highly resistant to oxidation and are relatively unaffected by sulfur compounds. ALLOY K is excellent for domestic appliances such as ranges and irons, and for industrial furnaces and ovens, ceramic kilns, and other applications where the heating elements can be supported.

Bare wire will be provided unless other tolerances are required.

This is sold by the pound, although some other companies sell it by length. "Call for custom products."
