Resistance wire is designed to resist the flow of electricity which turns electrical energy into heat. When beginning a project it can seem difficult to navigate the resistivity and resistances needed for best performance. Not only do we offer a large stock of alloys, but we are able to customize orders for specialized projects, including:

  • Heated Hoses
  • Heated Seats
  • Freeze Protection
  • Leak Detection
  • Composite Curing
  • Heat Trace Cables
  • And More…

We’re Problem Solvers

Custom heating wire is our specialty and we’ve been doing it for over 50 years. Pelican Wire has combined lean manufacturing processes, knowledgeable engineers, and a variety of insulations to provide you the perfect wire for your needs.

We’ve developed industry-leading customization’s that allow us to offer performance tolerance as low as +/- 1%, which is well below the standard 5% average.

Pelican Wire offers a large stock of alloys:

Nichrome 60, Nichrome 80, Alloy 875, Alloy 815, Midohm, Manganin, Advance, Evanohm, Balco, Nickel 200, Alloy 30, Alloy 60, Alloy 90, Copper, Stainless Steel
