    Just curious.........Has anyone ever used or heard of using tungsten?

    Okay....one other curiosity. Has anyone mixed metal type with success? Say, Kanthal and SS, or Nickel and Stainless. I want to make a 2 stage heating coil. The thought is that one wire would heat up much faster than the other. The idea being to decrease the heat up time in the coils. Pre-heat the juice, if you will.

    I've seen profiles for it and dicodes mods come with a tungsten profile loaded. I've never seen the wire for sale though...

    IIRC some people did mixed wires this in the early days of TC, when all we had was Ni200. Ni200 twisted with kanthal was used to improve durability of the coil. I've never tried it. I wouldn't attempt two separate coils of different materials though, I expect it would be very difficult to balance it such that neither coil overheated. If you want a preheat, get a mod with a preheat function - much less hassle.

    Bonjour,
    appreciate your initial message very much!, thanks for this.

    Right now i am about to order some tc-wire from Zivipf. Wonder if you think your message iniating this thread is still valid? My budget is sort of limited these days, i like to find an alternative to Resistherm and Titanium, to work on a DNA60.

    regards

    No it's a tc wire. Only SS can be used in both.
