What is Shape Memory Alloy Nitinol

Russia and Ukraine is an important exporters of oil, natural gas, metals, fertilizers, rare gases and other industrial raw materials. Affected by the further intensification of the tension of the war, the global market has become more worried about the supply of the Nitinol, and panic spreads in the futures market. Prices of commodities such as aluminum and nickel are at recent highs on concerns that supplies will fall. Russia accounts for 49 percent of global exports of nickel, 42 percent of palladium, 26 percent of aluminum and 13 percent of platinum, and is a significant exporter of steel and copper. Palladium is an important metal for sensors and memory. In addition, Russia is the world's largest exporter of nitrogen fertilizer, the second largest exporter of potash fertilizer, and the third-largest exporter of phosphate fertilizer. Ukraine is also an important producer of nitrogen fertilizer. Russia's natural gas supply also has a significant impact on the global fertilizer industry and Nitinol industry, especially in Europe. The price of the Nitinol will also fluctuate to some extent. Russia carries out crude gas separation, and Ukraine is responsible for refined exports. Ukraine supplies 70% of the world's neon, 40% of krypton and 30% of xenon. These three gases are the materials used to make chips.

What is Nitinol?

Nitinol is a shape memory alloy, which is a special alloy that can automatically restore its own plastic deformation to the original shape at a certain temperature, and has good plasticity. In addition to its unique shape memory function, memory alloys also have excellent characteristics such as wear resistance, corrosion resistance, high damping and superelasticity.


Nickel-titanium alloy has a strong "memory", it can accurately restore its original shape with the change of temperature, use it to fill teeth, and even the frog holes that you have twisted around can be inlaid very tightly; use it to When connecting the pipes, it will be like the tight hoop on Sun Wukong's head, which can shrink automatically and is very firm.


Uses of Nitinol

The pipe joint device made of nickel-titanium alloy can automatically shrink when heated, so the pipe joint can connect the catheter very firmly. This kind of pipe joint is used in the system of naval ships and some chemical devices. Many countries use shape memory alloys to make self-fastening rivets to fasten the connection of some special parts such as aircraft and spacecraft. The United States also uses shape memory alloys to develop an antenna that opens automatically in a spacecraft. This antenna can be automatically folded and put into the spacecraft. As the flight altitude rises, the temperature rises under the sunlight, and the folded antenna will automatically open again.


Nitinol can also be used for the early alignment and leveling of patients' dentition. Due to the superelasticity and shape memory properties of the Nitinol archwire and the lower stress-strain curve, the Nitinol archwire is currently routinely included in the clinical practice. The arch wire of the orthodontic system.


Nickel-titanium push springs and tension springs are springs for orthodontics. They are super-elastic with nickel-titanium, and are suitable for orthodontic treatment to open up gaps between teeth and pull teeth in different directions.

The resurgence of the global COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of the Russia-Ukraine conflict continued to cause high volatility in commodity prices. Stubbornly high inflation and rising commodity prices are likely to influence each other and thus push each other higher. The price of the Nitinol may not decrease significantly in the short term.
