Nitinol Wire

Nitinol is a nickel-titanium alloy used in many critical medtech applications. The performance of the raw material is directly related to the level of control maintained throughout the production process. Our nitinol wire starts from the highest quality nitinol ingot and then is carefully drawn into the desired wire diameters. Through our partnership with Ingpuls Medical, we can produce nitinol wire that leads the industry in quality and precision.

Let our experienced team help you select the right grade of Nitinol for your application and determine specifics like wire shape, size, surface finish, and more.

Nitinol Wire Applications

Nitinol’s mechanical properties include excellent corrosion resistance, fatigue performance, and exceptional elasticity. Nitinol is a shape memory alloy with unique fatigue properties that allow it to return to its original form even after deformation when exposed to a specific transformation temperature. These characteristics make our Nitinol wire suitable for many medical device applications, including guidewires, braided products, orthodontic wire, and implantable surgical devices.
