An Overview of Nickel-titanium Alloys

0 Comment

Nickel-titanium alloy, also known as nitinol, is a binary alloy made up of nickel and titanium, these two elements are roughly equal in the atomic percentage (Nitinol 55 and Nitinol 60 are very common). There are two different crystal structures in nickel-titanium alloy due to the change of temperature and mechanical stress, which called austenitic […]
