New Alloy: Inconel® 617 is now available from Alloy Wire. Learn about Inconel® 617
Datasheet: RW 70
High Strength Hot Cutting Wire.
The hot cutting wire RW 70 has high strength at elevated temperatures and is used for cutting polystyrene (EPS) and or heat-sealing polypropylene bags.
To achieve the best cut, adjust the temperature and cutting speed. The material type and it’s density will influence the cutting speed.
Available in all profile options
RW 70 density, electrical resistivity at 20°C, operating temperature, melting point and coefficient of expansion is indicated in the table below:
|Density||Electrical Resistivity at 20°C||Maximum Operating Temperature||Melting Point||Coefficient of Expansion|
|8.00 g/cm³||70 microhm • cm||300 °C||1375 °C||17.6 µm/m °C (20 – 100 °C)|
|0.289 lb/in²||421 ohm. Circ. mil/ft||572 °F||2500 °F||9.8 x 10-6 in/in °F (70 – 212 °F)|
