NIKROTHAL TE is a member of the Nikrothal family of alloys, which are one of two main types of electric-resistance alloys. Nickel-chromium (80Ni-20Cr, for example), developed around the turn of the century, was used as heating-element material in industrial furnaces and electric household appliances. Nikrothal alloys offer advantages in heating-element applications requiring very good mechanical properties in the hot state. This alloy is an attractive alternative to Nikrothal Alloys 40, 60, 70, and 80 (see Alloy Digest Ni-529, September 1997). This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, and tensile properties. It also includes information on forming. Filing Code: Ni-710.
