Kanthal A1 wire for pins

Jun 9, 2015
Guys , from company / aluminium and steel casting/ where I bought ceramic fiber blanket I get for free three new/never used elements from 3.5mm Kanthal A1 wire.They are out Dia. of 3cm. and 1.8m lenght not stretched ......
Chemical composition of A1 is . . . C %=0.008 , Si=0.7 , Mn=0.4 , Cr=20.5 , Al=5.8 and Fe =Bal.
I have no idea what to do with this except to use it as pins???
It seems to me that this thing will not rust , I'm right ??

I wouldn't bother straightening the coils out, a roll of wire is cheap. Why not sell them on Ebay or something?

I would only straighten the coils out if I needed pin material asap and didn't want to wait a few days to get a roll of wire.
