Resistance Wires

Resistance Wire For Your Needs

Whether round, flat or profiled, the resistance wire is a staple product in the plastic film packaging and polystyrene industries over many years. Resistance wire is an electrical wire that resists electricity, converting energy produced into heat.

It's excellent capacity to seal & cut without mess and comparatively low setup and running costs makes it the preferred method in most low to medium volume applications. Resistance wire is available in a variety of different shapes, and can be cut specifically to suit your needs.

Applications

  • Packaging Machinery
  • Sealing Bar Ribbon Wires
  • Plastic & Foam Cutting 'Hot Wires'
  • School Experiments
  • Set Design in Movies & Theatre

Selecting a Resistance Wire

Option 1 - Diameter & Resistance/m, see details below
Option 2 - Voltage, Length and Resistance or Current required

The higher the Gauge number, the smaller the diameter, the thinner the wire and the higher the resistance.

At Cynebar, we use B&S numbers in our descriptions there may be other numbers used in wire specifications, the most common are:

  • B&S - Brown and Sharpe.
  • AWG - American Wire Gauge.
  • SWG - Imperial Standard Wire Gauge - (British Legal Standard).

Because of less electrical resistance a thick wire will carry more current with less voltage drop than a thin wire. For a long distance it may be necessary to increase the wire diameter - reducing the gauge - to limit the voltage drop.

Watts = V2/R
V= I x R

V = Volts
R = Resistance
I = Current in Amps

You can purchase stock resistance wire in 3 ways:

  1. Wire Price per 20 meter Spool - $30 + GST
  2. Wire Price per kg, usually 1 to 4 kg at any one time per spool, for a specific weight there would be a cutting fee of $30 + GST.
  3. Price per meter - $10 + GST.
