Kanthal A1 Wire is the wire used to make your own coils, and is often the coil material found in most replaceable atomizers. Keep in mind that Kanthal coils will not work on a device in temperature control mode (which should be saved only for use with Nickle, NiChrome, Titanium, and Stainless Steel) and can only be used in "power" mode.
Kanthal is the trademark for a family of iron-chromium-aluminium (FeCrAl) alloys used in a wide range of resistance and high-temperature applications. Kanthal FeCrAl alloys consist of mainly iron, chromium (20–30%) and aluminium (4–7.5 %). The first Kanthal FeCrAl alloy was developed by Hans von Kantzow in Hallstahammar, Sweden. The alloys are known for their ability to withstand high temperatures and having intermediate electric resistance. As such, it is frequently used in heating elements. The trademark Kanthal is owned by Sandvik Intellectual Property AB.
