Nickel Titanium (also known as Nitinol™) is the unique class of materials known as shape memory alloys. A thermoelastic martensitic phase transformation in the material is responsible for its extraordinary properties. These properties include the shape memory effect, superelasticity, and high damping capability. The properties of Nitinol can be modified to a great extent by changes in alloy composition, mechanical working, and heat treatment. In most cases a trial and error process is required to optimize these factors for a particular application.
Alfa Aesar offers a wide variety of NiTi components to meet your unique requirements. In addition, many standard items are in stock for immediate delivery.
