Nitinol TubingJohnson Matthey is a leader in large diameter, thin wall and microlumen Nitinol tubing.  Our 20 years of experience with NiTi shape memory alloys gives us the knowledge to provide custom and standard Nitinol tube sizes to your exact specifications.

Nitinol tubing was first manufactured commercially in the early 1990's. Since then, the application have reached unprecedented levels and continue to rise today. Due to Nitinol's unique properties it has seen a large demand for use in less invasive medical devices. Nitinol tubing is commonly used in catheters, stents, and superelastic needles. Today, it offers the best compromise between engineered plastics and traditional metals.

Compared to other alloys tubing technologies Nitinol tubing technology is fairly recent but has many advantages over stainless steel hypotube.

  • Kink and crush resistance
  • Flexibility
  • Large amount of recoverable deformation
  • Generation of constant or low forces over a wide range of deformation
  • Energy storage and restoration
