Nickel-Chromium Alloys

Nickel-Chromium Alloys (NiCr), or Nichrome, are composed of different ratios of nickel and chromium, with the most common being Nichrome 80/20. Nichrome is silver-gray in color, is very durable, and has a very high melting point of ~1400 degrees C. It is resistant to electrical flow, heat, corrosion, and wear. This resistance to oxidation makes nichrome popular for use in heating elements.
Typical Applications

Nichrome is used in heating elements, in fireworks and explosives as an electrical ignition and is also popular for creating hard-wearing coatings both for decorative and engineering purposes. Due to its durability, resistance to heat, and general toughness, nichrome is also found in aircraft engine turbines.
