Three- point deflection testing to measure force values :- State of the art Bose ELF 3200 mechanical test system was used for 3 point bending testing of orthodontic wires controlled at 37% celcius.
Our new HANT 300-350 wire is soft,even at room temperature but fully austenitic at 350 C in the mouth.
The HANT 30o-35o Ni TI wire is partly martensitic at room temperature.The martensitic characteristics that we refer to is the “soft” state of the Ni-Ti material.The material gives you the “best of both worlds” offering you a soft manipulate wire at room temperature and fully resilient wire after insertion in to the mouth.
HANT 300-350 wire is martensitic below 300C. So its soft at room temperature. Its fully austenitic at 350C,so it is super elastic in the mouth.
- Ni-Ti wires need to demonstrate extreme elasticity, consistent force and shape memory, over limited range of deflection.
- Flat curve of tooth moving force evidence “Constant Force”
- Extreme elasticity shape memory is shown by near complete rebound.
- Wire is tested on Bose ELF 3200 machine for every production batch.
