This is what we use for all of our handmade Coiled range, from Tri-Core Aliens, Fused Claptons to Framed Staple Fused Claptons, this wire has never let us down.
Nichrome 80 series resistance wire is composed of 20% Chromium and 80% Nickel. It’s a low resistance wire under normal circumstances. When dealing with the thinner gauges of this wire (34-44g) the resistance is much higher than you’d expect.
The 20-26g can be used for single strand coils.
The 27-28g can be used for core wires of multi-strand Claptons like Alien Claptons but the thinner gauges (34-46g) will not perform well as a standard coil so if you’ve never used high gauge wire before, make sure you’re buying the appropriate wire for your build before purchasing.
The thinner gauges (34-44g) are for Clapton coils, multi-strand twisting or to add a bit of colour to your coil-art.
