Maximum operating temperature of 1180°C (2150°F). Has a low temperature
coefficient of resistance and a low change in resistance during its
service life that combine to assure faster heat-up times, more uniform
operating temperatures, and a longer useful life. Its excellent
mechanical stability minimizes variables in element design, assures even
stretch in coiled form, and eliminates problems of shrinkage, growth,
sag, or distortion in use.
