ISA®-CHROM 80 is especially characterized by high resistivity and
high resistance to oxidation and chemical corrosion. ISA®-CHROM 80
is non-magnetic. It possesses a relatively low temperature coefficient.
ISA®-CHROM 80 is suitable for high-value electrical resistors and
for heating wires for any application, also for heating cords and
cables. The maximum working temperature in air is +600 °C when
used for resistance wires and +1,200 °C when used for heating
wires. Oxidized wires display better insulation properties than other
alloys of this kind.
