In applications where the gradual bend of the wire causes less than 1.5% strain, and only enters into the modulus region of the stress-strain curve, Ultra-Stiff Nitinol wire exhibits increased stiffness when compared to our Nitinol #1. This means that a guidewire made from USN® that is straight will exhibit greater resistance to initial bend.
Available in diameters 0.009” (0.228 mm) – 0.030” (0.762 mm) on spools up to 8,000’ (2,438 m) in length.
