You might have used 316L SS before but we decided to change it up a bit and we made sure to have the new KP 316L SS wire annealed to the same KPSI as Kanthal. After further testing this wire is right in between the same KPSI as KA1 and N80. This will allow you to create all those awesome builds you've made with KA1 and N80 without any issues of springy SS. KP 316L SS Wire can be used in wattage mode & temp control mode. It is slightly lower in resistance when compared to N80.
