Resistance wires are suitable for manufacturing technical resistors or so-called shunts that are used for measuring electric current. They are especially durable, and their resistance value hardly changes as a result of inherent temperature. The are suitable for soft soldering, brazing, or even welding and can be processed very easily because they are so soft and malleable. Makers also use them the manufacture small heating units or elements for a wide range of applications. Their particularly high melting temperature makes this possible.
