With half the force but twice the working range of stainless steel, TMA has indications for all stages of treatment. Because of its intermediate stiffness between stainless steel and the nickel-titanium memory alloys, it is especially beneficial as a main working archwire. TMA has good flexibility and springback characteristics along with predictable forces for consistent control.
Both edes of the thin blades are fully radiused and stepped-in for precise forming of loops in four lengths – 3 mm, 4 mm, 5 mm, and 6 mm. The grooves at base provide aid in closing loops, while all working edges are carefully beveled to avoid wire damage. Wire capacity: .022” (.53 mm) 803-0405
