Due to COVID-19 and the uncertainty over whether we can keep up with demand we have taken the decision to cease spooling until we can be sure of a steady period of production time. We don’t want to take on work that we can’t fulfil. Therefore, we are only able to sell the spools we have already made.
All existing orders will be processed as expected.
We will announce the re-introduction of this range in due course.

Nickel chrome 60/15 is commonly used as a heat treatment wire.
60/15 nickel chromium alloy is often used for wrought and cast parts for high temperature applications, as it has better oxidation and hot corrosion resistance compared to cheaper iron-nickel-chromium alloys. This nickel chromium alloy is highly suited to applications that are subject to oxidation.
