Radiopacity Wire Velocity™ kit Radiopacity Velocity™ kit

The Radiopacity Wire Velocity™ kit provides material in a variety of diameters in our Nitinol -radiopaque DFT® composite wire, which combines Nitinol #1 with Tantalum or Platinum in varying sheath-to-core ratios. This kit enables you to explore the relationship between core element content and properties such as x-ray contrast, tensile strength and fatigue performance.

Each kit contains five samples – one from each size range in the specified quantity. Samples are provided in straight annealed condition. Nitinol sheath is provided in oxide surface. Platinum sheath has a bright, oxide-free surface.
