Ordering Information

When specifying resistance wire, it is important to consider all aspects of the application and of the wire. For example, if the application is on a conductive surface, wire type RWF should not be chosen. Also, if the application requires constant temperatures of 350°F (176°C), then alloy K should not be chosen. Call your local distributor or BriskHeat direct for application assistance.
