This very thin metallic wire is made of a non-toxic alloy of two metals, nickel and aluminium. It is a type of shape memory alloy – a metal that can be formed into a desired shape by treatment at high temperatures and when deformed, can recover their original shape if heated. The main use of this specific muscle wire is in medicine to form arterial stents and also in orthodontic braces, due to its extreme psuedo-elasticiy.
