Nitinol | Nickle titanium alloy wire | strip

As one of the most common uses for Nitinol, both the straight annealed and cold worked (as-drawn) states are available

Due to nitino’ shape memory effect and super-elastic properties, it can get amazing many innovative solutions. A TED video will tell you more informations about this new and amazing material
