Like 0Cr21Al6Nb, 0Cr23Al5 is a ferritic iron-chromium-aluminium alloy (FeCrAl alloy) for use at temperatures up to 1300°C. The alloy is used in home appliances and industrial furnaces. Typical applications in home appliances include metal sheathed tubular elements for dishwashers, elements embedded in ceramics for panel heaters, cartridge elements in metal dies, heating cables and rope heaters in defrosting and deicing elements, mica elements used in irons, quartz tube heaters for space heating, industrial infrared dryers, in coils on molded ceramic fibre for boiling plates with ceramic hobs, in bead insulated coils for panel heaters, in suspended coil elements for air heaters in laundry dryers.
In industrial applications, Kanthal D is used for the terminals of furnace elements as well as for furnace heating elements.
0Cr23Al5 Resistance Wire is also known as Kanthal D, Alloy 815, Alchrome DK, Alferon 901, Resistohm 135, Aluchrom 5, Stablohm 812, KD, Aluchrom I, Icralloy 20, Alferon 20, Alloy K etc.
Bright and soft annealed finish: 0.05 - 1.6mm; Acid-pickled or oxidation finish: 1.0 -10.0mm; Golden color: 1.0-3.9mm; Blue color: 4.0-10.0mm; Rods: 8.0-22.0mm
Flat wire: width from 0.2 - 6.0mm and thickness from 0.08 - 1.0mm; Wide strip: width from 8.0 - 240mm and thickness from 0.05 - 4.0mm
