Shannon MicroCoil NiTinol Wire
NiTinol Wire, Super Elastic
The word NiTinol comes from the elemental composition of the material, Nickel and Titanium, and the group who recognized it’s potential, Naval Ordinance Laboratory. NiTinol alloys are able to recover a preset shape. There are two primary categories of NiTinol, Shape Memory and Super Elastic. Shape Memory alloys are valued for their ability to recover to a certain shape after distortion. Super Elastic is noted for its kink resistant qualities and its flexibility,
Our NiTinol is a Super Elastic alloy that can be strained up to eight times more than ordinary spring steel without permanent deformation. It comes in straight lengths, annealed and a natural oxide finish. Application include wire mandrels, mechanical switching devices, prosthetics, robotic actuators and stents.
