Nitinol Strip

Memry offers nitinol strip because it behaves differently than nitinol wire in specific ways, providing unusual design characteristics while maintaining all the capabilities of wire.

Our continuous length strip is available in fully annealed or superelastic conditions, which work exceptionally well in stamping, forming, and other secondary operations where the unique cross-sectional differences between strip and wire provide benefits to our customers.

Our strip is manufactured to meet rigorous alloy composition, mechanical and dimensional specifications.

Nitinol is also available in a new alloy, Redox™.
