This is a single MAX THICKNESS 6" TRAINED NITINOL PLATE, 6" of NiTi Plate. This cold rolled and expertly processed plating is trained to transform at STANDARD TEMPERATURE. (115f/45c). The Plate Pack in this lot retails for $60.00.
This lot is discounted to less than our keystone Wholesale Price of $30.00 per pack as an Etsy Special. This is our lowest price for this plate, anywhere.
What you are buying is a Single Six Inch lengths of THICK 1mm Standard Temp Trained Nitinol Plate that measures 6" x 1". The transition temperature of this Plate is 115F (45C). Included will be instructions on how to program this plate into specific shapes as you wish.
Nitinol requires a very precise heat treatment to achieve the shape memory effect, particularly in this range. This plate has fully and consistently received this treatment.
The steps that our New Hampshire Lab has taken to Train this Nitinol Plate are not trivial. As such we recommend that most buyers of Nitinol Wire should purchase it in this form that has been Trained.
What remains is a much simpler process that we provide you with instructions for, to program the plate with whatever shape memory positions you require for your project.
When at lower temperatures, this wire is soft, random and easily bent. Expose it to 115 degrees F, and it bursts to action, quickly changing atomic state, and returning to the programmed shape you set. Note that it is already set to the shape you see in the bag, so further processing is only needed to form other programmed shapes.
The shape transformation happens smoothly and quickly. Each 6" long length of rare plate is made of a highly specialized form of cold rolled Nickel-Titanium that changes atomic state when exposed to air or water (or any) temperatures over 115 degrees.
This product is manufactured and will be shipped to you straight from our world leading New Hampshire based Nitinol laboratory.
We are Kellogg’s Research Labs, the leading Laboratory in the world specializing in the shape memory alloy, Nitinol. We make 107 different types of this complex alloy. Nitinol (NiTi) is the combination of Nickel and Titanium, discovered by the US Navy in the 1950’s. Research by top government agencies has continued to this day to unlock the secrets of this metal that behaves like no other. It seems otherworldly as no other metal has these strong shape memory properties.
Nitinol is widely considered to be the least corrosive metal yet discovered. (Stainless Steel is far more corrosive as an example). You can drop this Programmed Nitinol into the ocean and leave it for 1,000 years and it will look the same when recovered.
There is no risk to handling this wire. It has no toxicity so it is safe for kids, and will not harm food or anything else if dropped or exposed thus. In fact, stainless steel contains, and will generate, far more nickel allergens (to the few who may be allergic to nickel) than Nitinol does. This wire is far safer to handle than stainless steel. Kellogg’s Research Labs of New Hampshire is the maker.
We offer Free Global Shipping via First Class mail for all Nitinol orders on Etsy.
This fascinating and unusual shape memory alloy plating will be awesome for your projects, educational setting, school, science laboratory, or other organization, University physics, metallurgy, or engineer courses, etc. For any scientist, a physics fan, those that follow green or alternative energy, or advanced technology, this is the ultimate favor or gift that keeps on giving. It will repeat this rare shape memory behavior over and over. It is 100% child and food safe.
