Material Science / Scientific Testing
G&H Orthodontics is a recognized leader in manufacturing Nickel Titanium wire products. Continuous and meticulous testing of our wires ensures the high standards of performance we guarantee.
State-of-the-art stress/strain testing of Nickel Titanium wire is performed employing a three-point deflection test (fig. A) with a load cell probe impacting a wire and recording the forces throughout the range from deflection to recovery.
The test data (force vs. deflection) is validated on a daily basis to meet our stringent specifications. The data is then documented and archived on a hysteresis graph (fig. B).
