Known as the “happy medium” between nickel-titanium and stainless steel, this archwire provides the extended working range of a titanium alloy and the bendability of stainless steel.
Carefully processed to reduce breakage, Unitek Beta III Titanium offers a greater than fifty percent increase in fatigue resistance. Quite simply, 3M Unitek offers a stronger wire that is less likely to break during formation or activation. Polishing the wire surface during the manufacturing process has resulted in a smoother finish for improved sliding mechanics, enabling you to complete treatment more swiftly. The same award winning quality standards for Unitek™ Nitinol Heat-Activated archwire have been applied to Unitek Beta III Titanium archwire. Tight corner radii specifications during your finishing stages allow you to take maximum advantage of the prescription built into your appliance system. If you utilize closing loops or intricate bends in your treatment, you will be pleased to see the added length in the archwire.
