Nitinol Wire

Nickel titanium, or Nitinol, is a corrosion resistant, paramagnetic metal alloy of nickel and titanium. Nitinol alloys possess two unique but closely related properties: shape memory and superelasticity (also known as pseudoeslasticity). CS Custom Fab currently fabricates the super elastic (not shape memory) alloy, which is kink resistant and flexible. The superelasticity occurs in a narrow temperature range slightly higher than its transformation temperature. This Nitinol can be strained up to eight times more than ordinary spring steel without permanent deformation. CS Custom Fab customizes Nitinol in diameters ranging from 0.005" to 0.040" with the follow capabilities:
