Unitek™ Nitinol Archwire

Unitek™ Nitinol Super-Elastic Archwire3M Unitek pioneered the use of nickel titanium into orthodontists' wire progression plans. We offer three variations of Nitinol Archwire: Nitinol Classic, Nitinol Heat-Activated, and Nitinol Super-Elastic.

Unitek™ Nitinol Classic Archwire
Developed as an alternative to stainless steel archwires, this "classic" archwire provides the linear elasticity and bendability of high strength steel and the elastic working range and lighter forces that only a nickel titanium can deliver. It was the first and continues to be the most versatile.

Unitek™ Nitinol Heat-Activated Archwire
Unitek Nitinol Heat-Activated Archwire is thermally activated super-elastic archwire. It is the easiest of Nitinol wires to engage and it delivers light continuous forces designed to effectively move teeth.

Unitek™ Nitinol Super-Elastic Archwire
Unitek Nitinol Super-Elastic Archwire is easy to engage and maintains light continuous forces with a range between Nitinol Heat-Activated and Nitinol Classic.
