heater core wire faq's
Any welded metalwork, whether it be an oil pipe running across Alaska or a pressure vessel in a chemical plant in Sunderland, requires the welded area to be heat treated. Heater core wire is a heavy-duty, flexible heating wire that is threaded back and forth through ceramic beads to form a heating mat which can be applied to the weld, insulated, and then activated to raise the temperature of the weld and surrounding metal to temperatures of up to 800°C.
Nickel/Chrome and Iron/Chrome/Aluminium alloys (the Cromaloy range) are used for the heater wires with Pure Nickel or Nickel/Manganese 2% being used for the cold leads.
