Nickel-Titanium Shape Memory Alloy:

       Nickel-Titanium Shape Memory Alloy,also well-known as NiTiNol(Nickel Titanium Navy Ordnance Laboratory),of which each NiTiNol alloy grade is comprised of 54%-57% Nickel and 43%-46% Titanium,especially Ni-45Ti is the very common grade for biomedical applications.
     Even small differences from weight percentage,if would has significantly effect the properties of NiTiNol.

       NiTiNol mainly include the following two varieties:
             Ⅰ. Shape Memory Alloy(SMA):
                  SMA,one of the most important grades of NiTiNol for biomedical choice,is exactly estimated to recover the previous shape when heated beyond its transformation tempreture.
             Ⅱ. Super Elasticity Alloy(SEA):
                  SEA is described because of its extraordinary kink resistance after specially heat treatment.
