UNS N06003

Also known as Nichrome 80-20, this nickel-chromium alloy it is well-suited for resistors at high operating temperatures. It has found wide application for resistances due to the combination of high electrical resistance and  a low temperature coefficient of resistance. Nichrome V wire cloth is often seen in electric furnaces, radiant heaters, and other electrical industry applications.
