What is elgiloy wire?

What is elgiloy wire?

Elgiloy® is a cobalt alloy wire. It is a non-magnetic Cobalt-Chromium-Nickel-Molybdenum alloy having a unique combination of very high strength, excellent corrosion resistance, and high fatigue strength.

What is elgiloy material?

Elgiloy® is considered a “super-alloy” consisting of cobalt, chromium, nickel, iron, molybdenum and manganese.

Is Elgiloy stainless steel?

Elgiloy stainless is a stainless steel alloy with excellent corrosion resistance and high tensile strength.

What is Nitinol made of?

Nitinol is an alloy comprised of nickel and titanium. At room temperature, nitinol is easily deformed and can be twisted into virtually any shape desired.

Who owns elgiloy?

Combined Metals
As a subsidiary of Combined Metals, we offer a network of precision flat rolling mills, wire drawing, precision slitting, along with a network of service centers and representation worldwide. We offer a wide selection of over 50 alloys in both precision strip and wire including Elgiloy® alloy, our namesake.

Why is Nitinol expensive?

Nitinol’s Unique Properties Nitinol is an especially valuable alloy because it is extremely elastic and can change shape depending on temperature.

Is Inconel electrically conductive?

Results show that the different microstructures of Inconel 718 obtained have a distinguishable effect on electrical conductivity when this is measured through an appropriately sensitive technique (i.e. eddy current testing). The lowest conductivity values were observed for under aged samples (1? 44% IACS).

How much does nitinol wire cost?

Flexinol wire properties:

Item # Metric Item # Standard Unit Price
Flexinol® 150 HT/LT Flexinol® 0.006 $2.50 / ft
Flexinol® 200 HT/LT Flexinol® 0.008 $2.50 / ft
Flexinol® 250 HT/LT Flexinol® 0.010 $2.50 / ft
Flexinol® 300 HT/LT Flexinol® 0.012 $5.00 / ft

Is nitinol stronger than stainless steel?

At room temperature, nitinol has an ultimate tensile strength of between 103 and 1,100 MPa. By way of comparison, steel possesses a tensile strength of between 300 and 2,400 MPa, depending upon the material’s composition.
