Heat Resistance Wire, Rod & Tubing
Concept Alloys’ Chromel Alloy 126 (formerly Hoskins Alloy 126) was developed to be chemically compatible with nickel base thermocouple alloys while providing the best possible protection at high temperatures in oxidizing environments.
Concept Alloys’ Alloy 126 is often compared with Haynes 230 and Haynes 214. These competitive alloys are often used in applications for which our Alloy 126 was designed. Haynes 214 is chemically similar to our Alloy 126. In most cases, where direct performance data is not available, it can be assumed that the data for Alloy 126 would be similar to Haynes 214. It should be noted, however, that Alloy 126 is softer than Haynes 214, due to the lower aluminum and carbon content of the Alloy 126. This makes Alloy 126 easier to fabricate.
