.025mm Specialty Nickel Wire

04/28/2010 5:59 PM

I've acquired 4,824,801 gross meters of Purity Grade 99.87 nickel wire with a diameter of .025mm. I'm looking to sell the wire but have found out is a specialty product. I don't know whom to contact. What industry or companies should I contact. I'm willing to pay a healthy commission to anyone that can sell this for me.

Sincerely,

Douglas Shipley

Senior Partner



Nickel of grade NP-2 is not a nickel alloy, i.e. a doped material, made of systems Ni-Al-X, Ni-X-Al.

The wire is made of nickel of grade NP 2, the chemical composition of which is similar to grades of Ni 99,6 DIN 17740 (Germany) and Nickel 205, Grade A (U.S.).

Various alloys are used in the EDM process. I would start with a google search for "nickel wire EDM".

Thanks. I've googled nickel wire for several days and reached out to most of the specialty wire manufactures. I'm more interested in contacting the end users.

Got that. Wire EDM is an electro-machining/cutting process. Facilities that perform wire EDM are the end-users of the alloy wire. I believe some of them use very large quantities. Do you want to sell the whole batch or 4.8 million 1 meter pieces? I'd bet the former. Either way, good luck.

Just curious, is your wire really 0.025 mm (~0.001 inch) or is it 0.25 mm (~0.010 inch) diameter?

Unfortunately, it's .025mm

Sounds like it might be used to make screen for industrial filters and such. Most screen manufacturers these days are offshore.

I can only think of one place called Dorstener Wire Technologies here in Spring TX(actually about two miles from my house) that might have an idea of who might could use it.

The only end users I could think of would be steel or aluminum makers. They use nickel for alloying. Although they use nickel in a different form than wire, they could also use wire. I did a quick calculation and found that amount of nickel wire is equivalent to 4.091 cu meters or 144.468 cu ft or a cube 1.6 meters (5-1/4ft) each side. Thats a pretty good chunk of nickel.

Thanks Ronseto. I've come to learn that the value of the wire or nickel is that it's been drawn down to .025mm. Albeit a very niche market, therein lies the value.

Have you tried talking to manufactures of flash lamps, xenon, for example. These tubes need a very fine, strong, and conductive wire wrapped around them, on which high voltage is pulsed to start the flash process. One of them might be interested in a deal for trigger-wire.

Re: .025mm Specialty Nickel Wire

Hi, I was wondering if the resistance was high enough, if this wire could be stranded and then woven as a flexible core for a high temperature heating mantle or with a fiberglass or quartz wool over-wrap as a flexible insulated high temperature heater? I think a company like Brisk-Heat, Watlow, or some other large manufacturing entity of flexible heat tapes could possibly be interested in this fine gage of wire.

I can imagine plenty of applications where conformability, high temperature stability, and chemical inertness would be highly desireable features. I realize that Ni-Chrome wire is used for many heating mantles, but Ni-Cr is just one of hundreds, or probably thousands of formulations that can be engineered for the particular "watt-density" necessary for custom application.

Nickle is a very interesting element! Truely an unsung hero in terms of its thermal stability, its ability to "passivate" and also "wear" rather well.

Seems like I remember that one of the key parts of automotive airbags was a flame arrestor/heat diffuser that sits between the bag and the explosive charge that was made up of wool made up of fine gauge stainless or nickel wire. You might could use this for manufacturing woven PEM fuel cell electrodes (we used corrugated foamed Nickel 200 when we were playing with them, but nickel 200/205 mesh would probably be workable too.).

MRC,

I'm not in the industry, you might say I'm a neophyte .... but I'm learning quickly.

Nickel of grade NP-2 is not a nickel alloy, i.e. a doped material, made of systems Ni-Al-X, Ni-X-Al.

The wire is made of nickel of grade NP 2, the chemical composition of which is similar to grades of Ni 99,6 DIN 17740 (Germany) and Nickel 205, Grade A (U.S.).

Nominal Composition

Alloy Ni% Mn% Fe% Si% Cu% C% Ti%
Nickel 205 Min 99.6 Max 0.20 Max 0.2 Max 0.10 Max 0.10 Max 0.05 Max 0.05
Nickel 205 LC Min 99.6 Max 0.20 Max 0.2 Max 0.10 Max 0.10 Max 0.02 Max 0.05

Go to the trade association of the Ni industry, www.NIDI.com, and look for a listing of companies that make things from pure Ni.

I've come to learn that the value of the wire is in the diameter, not the weight.

That is very thin. One tenth of my high E string on my Guitar. How about you find someone who could weave it, combined with other fibers. Could become a fashion statement, so don't worry about the price.

I know, these bloody artists, wattle they think of next

Good luck and don't worry about the commission, just buy me Missus a hat made from it, Ky.

Nickel is a poor choice for jewelry, a lot of people develop allergies to Nickel.

Hi Rorschach

It was not meant for jewelry but for weaving in general. Picking fashion was just off the top of my head. More down the lines of this post. 20

I would do a bit more research but don't have the time. Hope Doug finds a use, I'll keep it in mind, Ky.

I think this wire has an electrical resistance of 1.9 ohms per foot. Mine was used for electrical heater wire in an electric blanket about ten years ago. Also the same wire was used as a heater wire for a hair drier. So it has application in industries producing electrical heaters. Cartridge heaters used in soldering irons and other similar applications. The Thomas Register provides lists of companies that produce these products and thus may use this material. But you know this is like reverse engineering to find a producer that uses the product you have rather than using the material you picked up so cheaply to produce a marketable product. There is opportunity in this.

Douglas,

Were you able to sell the Ni wire through this forum? I have access to a large quantity (20 million meters) of 0.025 Ni wire (99.8% certified purity) and I also don't know who to contact or what industry/companies I should try. If you can lead me to a buyer, there's something in it for you or your company.
