Forms of supply

Standard sizes are 1.20, 1.60 and 2.00 mm (0.0472, 0.0693 and 0.0787 inch). Other sizes can be offered on request. The standard delivery form is tight wound on SD 300K spools.

Typical applications

Kanthal thermal spraying wire is used in a variety of applications, such as:

  • High-temperature oxidation protection used, for example, to resist gases in boiler atmospheres
  • Coatings to resist heat and prevent scaling of conventional low alloy steels
  • Bond coats for improving the adhesion of top coatings
  • Coatings on moulds in the glass industry
