Properties 
of Nitinol 

Nitinol is a nickel-titanium alloy with superelasticity and shape memory properties. Shape memory refers to the ability of Nitinol to undergo deformation at one temperature and then recover its original, under-formed shape upon heating above its transformation temperature. Superelasticity occurs at a narrow temperature range just above its transformation temperature; in this case, no heating is necessary to cause the under formed shape to recover, and the material exhibits enormous elasticity, some 10-30 times that of ordinary metal.

Nitinol technical properties

  1. Values listed are for a full martensite to austenite transition.
  2. Hysteresis can be significantly reduced by partial transformation or ternary alloys.
  3. Similar to 300 series stainless steel or titanium
  4. Highly nonlinear with temperature

Applications

Nitinol wire is used for many different medical and industrial applications. The table below gives some typical engineering applications for each of our standard Nitinol medical grades:

  1. Guidewires, stents, stylets, forming mandrels, stone retrieval baskets, orthodontic files, etc.
  2. Often used in applications that require a high loading and unloading plateau stress at room temperature. Chromium-doped for decreased transformation temperature and increased tensile strength.
  3. Applications requiring increased stiffness. Cobalt-doped for decreased transformation temperature and increased tensile strength.
  4. Provides the best cycling performances at body temperature (37°C).
  5. A common application for this alloy is high-temperature actuators.
  6. A common application for this alloy is high-temperature actuators.
  7. Typically used in applications that require a phase transformation at body temperature (37°C).
  8. For use in very cold temperature environment applications.
