Electrical Resistance

Continuous Electrical Resistance Heating

From toaster ovens to industrial furnaces, Special Metals alloys for electrical resistance are the industry standard.

Electrical Resistance Materials Experts

Continuous electric resistance heating is rough on metal—unless they’ve been engineered to withstand the rigors with metallurgical precision.


BRIGHTRAY® alloys are used in strip, wire and ribbon-heating elements as well as starter and braking resistors on trains and in other industrial engineering.


INCOLOY® and INCONEL® alloys are used in with furnace furniture constructed in the same material for maximum resistance to the environment.

Strength and Resistance

Special Metals electrical resistance alloys have excellent mechanical strength and resistance at high temperatures and have a good surface stability.
