When heated in air, most metals then oxidize quickly, become brittle, and break. However, when heated to red-hot temperatures, nichrome wire develops an outer layer of chromium oxide, which is thermodynamically stable in air, is mostly impervious to oxygen, and protects the heating element from further oxidation.
