Properties and Application Notes
RESISTHERM® is well known for having a high temperature coefficient at a relatively high resistivity. Up to 600 °C, this alloy is ferro-magnetic. It is mainly used in wire form for temperature-dependent resistors. Also for shielded resistors for spark-plug connectors as well as self-regulating heaters. The maximum working temperature in air is 800 °C.
Form of Delivery
RESISTHERM® is supplied in the form of round wires in the range 0.25 to 0.02 mm Ø in bare, oxidized (non-insulated) or enamelled condition and also in the form of stranded wires.
Notes on Treatment
RESISTHERM® can easily be spot-welded. Under certain conditions it can also be soldered and brazed (see Technical Information).
