Nickel 205 wire is sought after for its potent electrical and resistance attributes. Therefore, this wire is perfect for use in lead wires. Obviously, the electrical properties of this metal make it appealing to work with, but this alloy is also very easily formed.
Nickel 205 is extremely ductile and depending on the diameter, can even be formed by hand. The combination of conductivity and ductility creates a material that is used in an array of industries:
- Medical Devices
Bob Martin Co. carries this nickel alloy wire, among many other wires from Bronze, Brass, Stainless Steel, Nickel Plated, and other Pure Nickel materials.
Nickel 205 is one of the family of essentially pure nickel materials. In this instance the alloy contains small additions of aluminum and titanium for a good combination of mechanical and electrical properties.
Nickel wire has numerous applications across many different industries, from electronics and machine building to jewelry making! Its ability to be molded into intricate shapes combined with its low cost make nickel wire an attractive option for those looking for versatile materials without breaking the bank. Whether you’re an engineer looking for high-precision parts or someone just starting out in jewelry making, nickel wire should definitely be a material you consider using.
