GUMMETAL is an entirely new Ti-Nb based beta titanium alloy developed by Toyota Central R&D Labs, a Toyota think tank, which displays the good properties of rubber

GUMMETAL is the world’s first alloy that has high elasticity (low Young's Modulus) and high strength at the same time. These unique qualities cannot be obtained from any other conventional materials.

It’s properties are ideal for orthodontic wires: high stored energy, good formability, low stiffness and surface friction, large springback, bio-compatability and environmental stability.
