Product Description

Nitinol Super Elastic Wire ASTM F2063 Annealed, Straightened, Cut, Light Oxide Finish gets its name from its elemental composition and the discovery team who first recognized the potential of this powerful alloy (Nickel Titanium Naval Ordinance Laboratory). Nitinol alloys have the intriguing ability to recover a preset shape, even after drastic distortion. Composition is typically 55-56 percent Nickel and 44-45 percent Titanium, but slight adjustments of this ratio can significantly impact the properties of the material. There are two primary but overlapping categories of Nitinol. Our Nitinol Wire is a SuperElastic alloy which can be strained at least eight to ten times more than ordinary spring steel without permanent deformation. It can be rather severely compressed, bent or otherwise distorted, but snaps back to its preset or trained shape with considerable force that can be used as work. A new memory is imparted by restraining the material in exactly the shape required and heating to a temperature above 932F (500C) for a minimum of five minutes. The shape will be set upon cooling and will exhibit the same flexibility and resistance to deformation as the original wire. It can be repeatedly retrained to achieve new shapes. Prosthetic devices routinely utilize Nitinol alloys. Excellent corrosion resistance and biocompatibility contribute to Nitinols continued growth in the medical device world. Length Tolerance is + 1/8 / - 0 inches.

You will be very disappointed if you think this is Flexinol muscle wire; it is not. This is Shape Memory Alloy Nitinol. You can twist, bend, pull, tie it in a knot without kinking, and it will always flex back straight. It is very cool stuff. No problem with it breaking here. Be careful working with it because it is very springy and knock your eye out or cut you with great force using .043 size.

I've done very limited experiments with this, but it HAS proven to be extremely elastic (springy). Have not tried to use the "memory" property.

Satisfied in all respects.

Proven it's extremely springy. Tie it in a knot. Roll it into a ball. The "memory" works.
My energy experimenting friends (LENR) say it passes current in an extremely interesting fashion...

This is not advertised as shape-memory nitinol, as every other reviewer has complained about. This is advertised as superelastic nitinol, hence the "spring-like" characteristic that everyone has commented on. It does exactly what it is supposed to do. It is great!

I expected this to be some cool bendable wire that will turn back to its original shape when heated, however that was not the case. This is just a thin "spring like" wire that's really hard to bend. Was very disappointed when I discovered this...
