Abstract

This paper presents innovative technology for the production of seamless Ni-Ti tubes using self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS). The proposed production technology is a unique method which removes the need of forming operations, reduces machining processes, and at the same time it eliminates the negatives of production Ni-Ti alloys by conventional melting methods. The proposed process consists in SHS reaction in evacuated silica tube with the use of extremely high heating rate (over 300 K min−1).
