Notice: the ICE Office will be closed through Monday, July 13th.

Due to UW-Madison campus access restrictions the ICE office will remain closed through July 13. The ICE Online Store will reopen on July 13 but only for limited service because of the restricted access to our facilities. Beginning July 13 ICE will process and ship SMALL orders once a week. We will aim for a processing time of 5-10 business days from receipt of order to shipping, operating within the constraints of very limited access. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through a partial re-opening. If you have questions, please contact us by email at iceorders@chem.wisc.edu. We will try to respond within 48 hours.

Type: D, I    |    Level: Al Levels
$8.00

Some metal alloys have shape-memory retention—that is, they can be bent and will return to their original shape when the temperature is raised. Pull the ends of the pre-shaped wire to distort it, then watch as it returns to the ICE shape when put into warm water.

This ICE-shaped memory metal is also available as part of the Memory Metal KitThe Memory Metal Kit includes an eight-page description of the chemistry responsible for shape-memory retention, many diagrams (ready for overhead projection), and a sample of ­memory metal wire (Nitinol™) in the shape of ICE.
