Hotter alternatives to Kanthal wire ?


As an alternative to Kanthal (which reaches up to 1200-1300C chamber temperature) I found a hotter alternative up till 1600 C.

I found 'Globar' SiC elements:

On ebay I found some listings:

Many people have experience with Kanthal wire, including myself, but does somebody have experience with these elements ?

There is also MoSi2.

From an amateur perspective carbon arc is probably better in that heat range.

Let's not forget H2-O2 flames or Oxy-Acetylene.
