Oil futures tumbled more than $5 a barrel on news that the Biden administration is considering releasing about 1 million barrels a day from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) for several months to cool surging crude prices.
Brent crude futures were down $4.71, or 4.2 percent, at $108.58 a barrel by 0035 GMT. U.S. West Texas Intermediate futures fell $5.45, or 5 percent, to $102.74 a barrel.
At an earlier time, gasoline prices had already reached record levels because of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
The prices of other commodities like the Nitinol Alloy are also expected to be volatile.
What is Nitinol?
The tensile strength of Nitinol can reach 1000 MPa. That is to say, it takes more than 100 dry grams of force per square millimeter to break it, which is stronger than ordinary steel, and also has good "memory" performance and corrosion resistance.
Nitinol contains 50% nickel and 50% titanium, that is, the components of nickel and titanium are equally divided, each accounting for half. The temperature range of its shape memory can be adjusted by controlling the composition. In general, the higher the nickel content of Nitinol, the lower the operating temperature. When the nickel content is 55% and the titanium content is 45%, the memory alloy can work at room temperature.
People have used this feature of memory alloys to make pearl necklaces and bracelets made of memory alloy wires, as well as bras woven with memory alloy wires. When these decorations and health care products are worn on the body, they will restore their original curvature and stiffness under the action of human body temperature, thus playing a role in decoration and health care. In addition, the orthodontic wire can also be made of Nitinol alloy, which can use the temperature of the human mouth to correct the deformed teeth.
