Kanthal A1 wire is well known around the world for its amazing heat resistant properties. Kanthal has become the standard name for the chemical content of this wire.
AWG stands for American Wire Gauge. We don’t use this as a measurement in the UK, but we have to for vaping products because many of the references start out from America.
Here is a list of the actual AWG with their comparative mm equivalents.
(30 AWG = 0.26MM) (29 AWG = 0.29MM) (28 AWG = 0.32MM) (27 AWG = 0.36MM) (26 AWG = 0.41MM) (25 AWG = 0.46MM) (24 AWG = 0.51MM) (23 AWG = 0.57MM) (22 AWG = 0.64MM)
Spool Size – 10 Metres
Heat Resistance – Up to 1400ºC (2600ºF) with a melting point of 1600ºC
American Wire Gauge (AWG) is a U.S. standard set of non-ferrous wire conductor sizes. The “gauge” means the diameter. It is most frequently applied to copper household electrical wiring and telephone wiring.
Millimetre (mm) is a unit of length equal to one thousandth of a meter and equivalent to 0.03937 inch.
In other words mm is a far more precise measurement. All sizes that are between AWG measurements will be rounded to their nearest AWG equivalent. For example 0.3mm is between 29 AWG and 28 AWG. We have rounded it to the nearest AWG measurement.
