Kanthal Globar (formerly Cesiwid) was established in 1993 when the Electric Products Division of Carborundum Corporation was purchased by Kanthal Globar Elektrowarme GmbH, headquartered in Erlangen, Germany. Kanthal Globar is, in-turn, a wholly owned subsidiary of Kanthal AB, headquartered in Halstahammar, Sweden.
When traditional resistors just won't do for your tough design problem, Kanthal Globar non-inductive bulk ceramic resistors offer the solution. We offer a full line of rugged, reliable bulk ceramic resistors - including custom designs - to meet the high voltage/energy requirements of the most demanding applications.

The advantages of non-inductive bulk ceramic resistors Bulk ceramic resistors from Kanthal Globar are superior to non-inductive wire wound, film and composition resistors for your demanding design situations involving high voltage, current or energy. Features include:
High reliability; no film or wire to fail
Able to withstand short-time overloads and high peak power
Chemically inert and thermally stable
Available in flexible geometries and a wide range of sizes
High power and energy dissipation in space saving designs
