Nickel Chromium: Heating Element & Resistance Alloys
Nickel-Chromium alloys are characterized by high electrical resistivity and resistance to oxidation and chemical corrosion. Different combinations of Nickel & Chromium are used for making grades suitable for different temperatures. These alloys are used for making heating elements for industrial furnaces that can be used in alternating oxidizing/reducing atmosphere. They are also used to make heating elements for domestic appliances, such as toasters, geysers, etc. Nickel-Chromium alloys also find use in the production of precision resistors and potentiometers for automotive and consumer electronics industries.
Nickel Chrome Iron Alloys Open or Close
Nickel-Chrome-Iron: High Temperature Alloys for Mechanical Applications
These alloys offer good oxidation and carburization resistance at high temperatures. They also provide good corrosion resistance in aqueous, high temperature, and acidic/basic/caustic environments. Ni-Cr-Fe alloys find use in furnace components, sparking electrodes for automotive and heat treating equipments such as baskets and muffles. Special grades find use in power generation plants, chemical-petrochemical processing, process piping, and heat exchangers.
Low Resistance & Shunt Open or Close
Copper-Nickel Alloys: Low Resistance Application
Different variants of high Copper & low Nickel content alloys with high or low specific resistance are notable for low temperature coefficient of resistance. Possessing high resistance to oxidation and chemical corrosion, these alloys are used for wire-wound precision resistors, potentiometers, volume control devices, winding heavy-duty industrial rheostats and electric motor resistances. Different variants are used for heating cables with low conductor temperatures and as tube weldings in "electrical welding fittings". Copper Manganese alloy is used a standard material for precision, standard and shunt resistors.

Dumet Wires Open or Close
Lamp and Diode GradeCore Material: Nickel Iron
Sheath Material: OFHC Copper
JLC manufactures finished Lead-in-wires as well as Dumet wire used in lead-in-wires for different kinds of lamps.
Dumet wire is the basic metal component of a Lead-in-Wire providing the required vacuum tight glass-to-metal seal. Dumet consists of a base wire and a sheath. The ratio of both compounds is in well-balanced proportions, only then is it guaranteed to obtain a vacuum tight conductor through glass. This principle is used mainly in the lighting and diode production.
