Resistance Ribbon Type - A | Resistance Ribbon Type - C
Nichrome Ribbon Types
The Arklay S. Richards Co., Inc. offers two types of resistance heating ribbon. The Richards NRA or Type A resistance heating ribbon is composed of 80% Nickel and 20% Chromium. The Type A has a lower temperature coefficient of resistance when compared to the Type C resistance ribbon. The Type A resistance ribbon has a usable temperature range up to 1150°C or 2100°F.
Richards NRC or Type C resistance heating ribbon is composed of 60% Nickel, 16% Chromium, and the balance of 24% Iron. Type C ribbon has a usable temperature range up to 1000°C or 1850°F. It also has a higher coefficient of resistance when compared to the Type A. Both types of ribbon have excellent corrosion resistance.
The Type C ribbon is very useful in applications where a high resistance is required within a limited space. In heating and technical applications, the Type A ribbon is most commonly used. The Type A and Type C resistance ribbon are both offered in large or small spool sizes.
