Ortho-Byte, Wilmington, Del, introduces the PROMPT 1×7 Niti wire. Six strands of nickel titanium wires are wrapped around a single core nickel titanium wire to form the PROMPT’s circular cross-section. It is then heat-treated to make it resilient. PROMPT is designed to deliver 55 grams of gentle and continuous force when subjected to severe malocclusions and serious deflection.
According to the company, PROMPT is a super-resilient wire that can accept sharp bends to a greater degree than ordinary nickel titanium wires without taking a permanent set. Its design and construction allows it to fully recover even when it is severely deformed.
Prompt is available in all round sizes and is guaranteed not to fray or unravel when cut.
