What is Nitinol Alloy and Application
Russian president demanded that exports of Russian gas to "unfriendly" countries be settled in rubles. The demand has raised concerns in Germany about possible supply disruptions and the impact on industry and households if utilities do not pay in robles. Europe gets about 40% of its gas from Russia. Last year, Europe imported about 155 billion cubic meters. Germany, Europe's largest economy, depends heavily on Russian gas.
The chief executive of Germany's E.ON said the German economy would face "significant damage, which should be avoided if possible" without Russian supplies. He also said it would take Germany three years to wean itself off Russian gas.
In the event of a supply disruption, Germany's gas network regulator would prioritize home heating over industrial use, so energy-hungry manufacturers such as steelmakers would be the first to suffer, he said.
The volatile international situations will continue to affect the markets and prices of many commodities like the Nitinol Alloy.
What is Nitinol?
The tensile strength of Nitinol can reach 1000 MPa. That is to say, it takes
more than 100 dry grams of force per square millimeter to break it, which is
stronger than ordinary steel, and also has good "memory" performance and
Nitinol contains 50% nickel and 50% titanium, that is, the components of
nickel and titanium are equally divided, each accounting for half. The
temperature range of its shape memory can be adjusted by controlling the
composition. In general, the higher the nickel content of Nitinol, the lower the
operating temperature. When the nickel content is 55% and the titanium content
is 45%, the memory alloy can work at room temperature.
People have used this feature of memory alloys to make pearl necklaces and
bracelets made of memory alloy wires, as well as bras woven with memory alloy
wires. When these decorations and health care products are worn on the body,
they will restore their original curvature and stiffness under the action of
human body temperature, thus playing a role in decoration and health care. In
addition, the orthodontic wire can also be made of Nitinol alloy, which can use
the temperature of the human mouth to correct the deformed teeth.

With the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the market is increasingly worried about the potential disruption of Russia's energy supply. Geopolitical premiums have pushed up the price of crude oil and natural gas, and the energy price is expected to remain high in the short term. Affected by this, the market price of the Nitinol Alloy may continue to rise.
