Kanthal A-1 is a ferritic iron-chromium-aluminium alloy (FeCrAl alloy) rated for use at temperatures up to 1400°C (2550°F). The alloy has high resistivity and great oxidation resistance. It is typically used in furnace applications, such as electrical heating elements in high-temperature furnaces for heat treatment, glass, steel, ceramics, and electronics industries.

The more wire you have, the greater the resistance. The following factors affect resistance.
Diameter: The thinner the wire (higher gauge number), the higher the resistance per foot. The thicker the wire (lower gauge number), the lower the resistance.
Length: The longer the wire, the higher the overall resistance. The shorter the wire, the lower the overall resistance.
Temperature: The more heat the wire generates, the more resistance it will create.
Current: Determine the current (amperage) you need to heat your wire.

I have ordered kanthal wire from Temco several times over the past few years. Really great wire to work with. Never had to clean this wire at all. Temco has great products at the best prices. Any time I need resistance wire, Temco is the only place I go to. I know they will have what I am looking for at the best price possible. No need for me to look elsewhere. Never had an issue with this wire. If you need any wire for your vaping needs, you won't be disappointed.
